so happy i’ve never seen a sight more beautiful
Boston synthrockers Magic Man released their terrific debut album Before The Waves just a couple weeks ago, and I greatly enjoyed blasting it start to finish, thanks to all the bright, anthemic, catchy tunes. In fact, I was supposed to catch Magic Man headline the Indy a week or so ago, but sadly had to miss the show. Sad face. Next time, I promise! There are good tunes aplenty on the album, but one of my favorites is still Paris, one of the songs that first hooked me onto this band in the first place. Chicago producer Louis The Child offers up this synthy, vibrant remix of the hook laden song for us. The off kilter, playful synth work reminds me of Passion Pit to some degree, quite irresistibly good.
