Magic Shoppe’s new EP, Interstellar Car Crash; let the sound in your ears. Why? Because it’s so groovy, upbeat, and mellow, flipping your mood and opening up a dialogue with your senses. Hearing the clench of four guitarists in synchronicity makes for a spellbinding release. The record has the stylings of a classic 78. A 10″ record, it holds four songs. Here’s a brief view of the tunes:
Here’s a brief on the tunes:
- Salventius takes off with a fuzzed-out shoegazy guitar sound, shimmering and swirling complimented by a solid bassline. The sound reminded me of 90’s shoegaze bands. The vocals are dreamy.
- City Alight (Yeah) is ethereal. It slows down and it comes back with a new urgency. Then it keeps that steady groove until it fades out totally.
- Redhead is more driving and excited, picking up more cues from grunge and garage rock. The song is after something.
- Interstellar Car Crash is more influenced by 70’s psychedelia with a certain nod to 90’s alternative. Vocals are more present in this splash of a song.
Flip, and it picks up pace, taking on a raw sound, & stops really suddenly into that epic pitchbend.
