Magic Magicians Discography of CDs


Girls Girls CD (2001)
CD $13.09 Buy It  Details
Magic Magicians music CDs Recorded in fits and starts from 1999 to 2001, the debut by the Magic Magicians -- which includes the Black Heart Procession's Joe Plummer and 764-HERO's John Atkins -- is an unfortunately inconsistent effort despite the enormous talent of both artists involved. What's so disappointing about this side project's hits and misses is that when the duo does it right -- as on the late-night listening of "123 to 9 to 5" and "Time Zones Be Damned" -- they really do it right. So knowing the band's potential to create wonderfully moving and beautiful soundscapes, it's frustrating that most of these ten tracks simply sound like unfocused filler. Too many songs are impossible to distinguish from one another as they blend, unnoticeably, into the next -- something which doesn't seem artistically intentional so much as the result of repetitive songwriting. Even still, at times Girls sounds so remarkably similar to 764-HERO's excellent Weekends of Sound that it should nonetheless appeal to fans of that band's walls of guitars and desperately plaintive vocals provided by Atkins. ~ Jimmy Draper Additional personnel includes: Janet Weiss, Coady Willis, Polly Johnson, Mike Johnson.

Magic Magicians discography The Magic Magicians' eponymous second album may have the same eclectic vibe as their debut, but this time John Atkins of 764-HERO and Joe Ben Plummer of the Black Heart Procession head in such a strange, experimental directions with their pop, that it pays off. Like fellow-West Coasters Ugly Casanova, the Magic Magicians skewer their pop with abandon, from the horn cacophony on "West Coast Harbor" to the dark and spiraling riffs and Strummer-esque vocals of "The Cab and I." It's really quite confounding, and sounds as unique as the Black Heart Procession and 764-HERO without sounding much like those bands at all. Sure, it's less-polished than either of those acts, but that is part of the Magic Magicians' charm -- they've got a rough, nervy, lo-fi take on power rock that has the weird immediacy of the Microphones' Mount Eerie. Unfortunately, some listeners may take this as inaccessibility, but when the Magic Magicians hit their mark -- the thundering, Afghan Whigs-sounding "Wet Pills, Pt. 1" and the dubby "Action" -- they create a disorienting swell that would fit well with avant-popsters like GoGoGo Airheart, No Knife, and Pleasure Forever. ~ Charles Spano Includes cover art by Raymond Pettibon.
