about

++IHANW05: Magical Beautiful - "right rock" single (CD)
- 3 songs. 18 minutes
- Made before Magical Beautiful became a full band, this is a (mostly) solo affair. The three songs were initially scheduled to be a part of the LP that became Here Come The Wild Waves, but were left on their own.
- pressed in a run of 1000
- first 30 copies on CDr and released at show w/ Black Moth Super Rainbow in Chicago, IL on 03.29.08. All copies thereafter on real CD with pink/brown face print.
- packaging made of 100% recycled cardboard
- This project was supported (in part) by a CAAP grant from the City Of Chicago Dept. of Cultural Affairs and Illinois Art Council (a state agency).
- Stranded in Stereo said: "The album rattles to life like a loose phono jack and then continues like a living 60 Hz ground hum, vibrating on until you cut the power. They pulsate like little stoned amoeba living inside Morton Subotnick's brain stem. Tracks combine synthesizer bongo effects interspersed with ray-gun noises and echo effects, which is indescribable in its emotional connotation. The last track, for example, is devoid of traditional instruments, consisting entirely of hum, reverb and echo sounds that are entirely clarisonus if still indistinct. What the record lacks is record crackle, a little dirt in the grooves, a yellowed paper sleeve, and a water-stained, 1950s Living Sound jacket. Inside the three tracks there is very little existing to ground the record or to make it material and mortal. It is not laid open the benign indifference of the universe. It stands instead, short in stature, but immune to all of us."

Track Name: Right Rock
I try
In a fake light I try
I sail
As I pitch aft and fore
//
BOOM! horn lights the night
Dock gone outta sight
I'm a cypher in the sea
Deep dark down below
Dark men paddle us on home
//
I'm highighighgighgigh I'm high
Ire's toast in dire straights I fly
//
Tape sweat through w/ wine
He's drunk for the fourth time (Caribbean Princess)
The bamboo stalks the blonde-haired fox
Floating down an alabaster line
//
The night oughta slight sight
Watch the light and we rockin right
Track Name: Wings In The Sky
Nature's scared white as Father's teeth
gnashing at the breast of Mother meek
Sun is a tear Devil shed in the wake
of the obscure love his Brother forsake
Waters frozen black like the curse-d tribe
lost in the desert where Father did them circumscribe
Time is golden, unconscious and wise
like our Great Sister with her wings in the sky
//
Boat is cruisin' slow through the sea subdued
Horn is boomin' low as father comes unglued
Island is a hole filled with sweat and sand
Princess docks at night in this mysterious land
//
Waves unfolding white like Caribbean snow
Landin' on a ruined beach in mainland Mexico
Brothers limpin' badly like a warped album
Sweat Selassie spit and Jamaican rum
//
Nature's scared white as Father's teeth
gnashing at the breast of Mother meek
Sun is a tear devil shed in the wake
of the obscure love his brother forsake
Waters frozen black like the curse-d tribe
lost in the desert where Father did them circumscribe
Time is golden, unconscious and wise
like our Great Sister with her wings in the sky
