White Magic

New Egypt

Label: Latitudes

Format: CD

Genre: Folk

In stock

"This latest in the ever-popular Latitudes series comes from Drag City avant-folkists White Magic, who have turned in a single ten-minute piece based on Eastern harmonies, delay loops and a tranced out approach to jamming that verges on Sunburned Hand Of The Man territory. For the vast majority of its duration 'New Egypt' relies upon a central three-note piano riff, which soon accumulates layer after layer of various other instrumental sources while seemingly improvised lyrics haunt the song through a veil of effects. It's all very much indicative of the conditions peculiar to a session recording, offering an alternate slant on a band who are ordinarily far more concise than this. It still sounds very much like White Magic though, and in fact the only other band who really sound anything like them are Women & Children, who employ a similar configuration of sounds to much the same ends. Comes in absolutely gorgeous, foil-embossed packaging too. Highly Recommended." (Boomkat)
