Slow Magic – ‘Corvette Cassette’
Oh NO! Not another enigmatic music-man/woman of mystery! First it was Unknown Mortal Orchestra and WU LYF, and now here’s another one to add to that secretive roster. In a Big Brother age when everybody knows everything about everyone, it sure is cool to be faceless.
The first 8-seconds sound almost identical to any Washed Out track, but then this processed childlike vocal enters and highlights a summer rhetoric that I imagine will infect the music scene quite quickly.
“Slow magic is the sound made by an unknown imaginary friend. “
It seems at this stage we’re not going to get any more info than that.
This enchanting video directed, edited and shot by Brendan Canty of Feel Good Lost, certainly enhances the music. Download the mp3 below.
