This is a particularly interesting EP which made it's way to me earlier this week. It' the first noise I've heard from Jason Magicks (is he really called Magicks?) and the six tracks on this EP leave me yearning for more. This is what the press release had to say...
"Magicks is creating music as one person, based on techniques Jason Magicks has learned as an audio engineer. Blending layers to create a more complex sound as a whole.
Mixing music with theatrics, Jason doesn’t adhere to the typical makeup of a band. With his solo project, Magicks, he does not want to sacrifice the musical layers. Instead, he combines electronic and DJ equipment with guitar, bass and a microphone to create atmospheric sounds.
Slightly improv/theme based, a Magicks set is unique from night to night."
