Magic Trick: Ruler of the Night
Buy! - (Hardly Art)
Formerly the solo project of The Fresh & Onlys frontman Tim Cohen, Magic Trick has morphed into a full band, with the new additions including members of Aislers Set and Kelley Stoltz’s band. They provide him with a more sturdy framework to flesh out a variety of dark, psych-tinged folk-pop songs reminiscent at times of Seattle’s Mark Pickerel, with a haunting, atmospheric sound combining acoustic and electric guitars, cheap synths and assorted other instrumentation with smoky, reverbed lead vocals and ethereal female harmonies. 6/15/2012 - Don Yates
