Bermuda is the latest effort by San Diegos dismal-pop outfit Mrs. Magician and their second full-length release on Swami Records. Out May 20th.
The album offers a concise collection of punk songs inspired by the
big sounds of classic 60s pop and rock n roll, with structures more
associated with 70s and 80s power pop. Thomas Garcias blissed-out
backwash guitar tones and fuck-it fuzz attack juxtapose the bands dry
and thudding foundation, creating a tropically depressed grog. Cutting
through the lacquer with a glossy shimmer, producer Swami John Reis
(Drive Like Jehu, Rocket From The Crypt, Hot Snakes) coaxes a tightly
wound, rigid backdrop for vocalist Jacob Turnblooms morose-pop delivery.
