Magic Castles had self-released three albums (two in 2009), all of which are currently out of print, before fans landed a You Tube video in the hands of the legendary Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre) via the We Are The Radio/Dead TV experimental social media phenomenon in 2010. On hearing the tracks Anton quickly asked the band to sign to his label which they did in 2011. Magic Castles are a band from Minneapolis Minnesota that was abruptly formed in 2006 by Jason Edmonds, with the help of guitar-ace Jeremiah Doering and a rotating cast of players and friends. Lyrically concerned with trolls, golden birds, and other creatures conjured from the lands of the mushroomed mind, the band takes a journey-is-better-than-the destination approach. Inspired by Spacemen 3, Skygreen Leopards, Galaxie 500, the band combines warm Farfisa drones with hazy guitars and bright vocal harmonies to create something similar without sounding redundant. Whether it be storybook psych, mildewy dark garage, or forest folk, the band crafts its songs using an expansive approach that deftly oscillates between traditional song form and stretched-out, slowly unwinding abstract passages, managing both poles without a smudge of awkwardness. Great albums by The Black Angels & Black Mountain have harbored the resurgence of psychedelic drone rock, and the psychedelic folk revival catapulted Devendra Banhart and Fleet Foxes to stardom - somewhere in the middle lies the sound of Magic Castles.
Sit back, light up a smoke and enjoy!
