Stamos & Beach Boys VS Ambient Blind Lady Music




Bang Bang by Terry Reid
Originally penned by Sonny Bono and performed by Cher. FYI-did you know Sonny met Cher when he was 28 and she was 16? They didn't even have Myspace back then...wassup internet predators. Even though Sonny would definitely get the gasface for that shit, this version of Bang Bang(My Baby Shot Me Down) definitely rocks the soundsystem way harder than Cher or Nancy Sinatra's. Buy It.

Tropical Ridges by Ezekiel Honig & Morgan Packard
This is the first track off of Early Morning Migration(buyit) from Microcosm Music. I'm not going to try and turn you on to this by comparing it to anything else out there, even though I could(Eno, Satie, Sigur Ros, sadness, comforting depression, prom). What I will tell you is that I was listening to this track on my mp3 player while on the R train and a blind homeless lady started singing Turn Off the Lights by Teddy Pendergrass acapella style, no beat no nothin. That exact moment was the highlight of my life as far as listening to music goes. WAAAY better than this.

Cute Evolution



In the event that mutants do eventually become a threat to national security and try and make peeps disentegrate into spizzle, I would hope that this dashing young gentleman would opt-in for the cure.
Everybody talking about this dudes arms...what about that SHIT on his face? Is that some Phantom-Op melty-face stuff? Don't even get me started about dudes fashion sense. Get out of bed and do something with your life you little 3-armed shit. No, dude, no...I am NOT giving you a high 15.

Anyway, enough about Art Adams styled X-Babies. Since it's the official first post from Magic School©, I gift you these two tracks. Sorry about the yousendit, we're gonna get a real website real soon for real.

And for added visual enjoyment. My boy Nicky W. gave me the heads up about this gypsy duo. I really don't have much to say about this except Nicky W. has and always be up on the latest and greatest and oldest and boldest.

I saw this trio at Lit in March and was pretty impressed by Dude 1 rocking the Roland Octapad and Dude 2 rocking the Korg Polysix and Dude 3 singing kinda like whatever-and-melt-with-you-west-end-us-apart.

And I pass the sthick to Bwad...
