[BadPanda127] Hypermagic – Piffy On A Rock

leave a comment »

Introducing London’s Hypermagic, a forest of echoes and polychrome phonographic vibrations inspired by acts like Grouper, Emeralds, Do Make Say Think and Teen Daze. Layers of rustic beats, rusty clicks, shrouded voices, kaleidoscope reverbered guitars and rheumatic feedback. After 4 well-received EPs and a full-length (everything on free download) here are new sonic textures and rhytmes that will ride you along a time warping tunnel headed straight for the moon. Stay tuned for more music at Magic Rub Cassettes and check out the interview below.

Amazing – you can do anything you like on your own terms and find anything that has ever been recorded in an instant. How can you argue with that?!

A neat idea, but remains to be seen how effective it will be. Intellectual property rights are dying (except broadcast royalties), and cannot be salvaged. If anyone would like to be a patron of the hypermagic world then every quid will be gratefully received.
