Magik Markers 

Surrender To The Fantasy (Drag City)

21.27.reviews.magikmarker.jpg

For all the meandering, all the fog and confusion and the splattering of sounds that happens on any given Magik Markers release (of which there are ostensibly countless), there is always something very pure and direct at the core. The Connecticut trio makes fevered, impressionistic rock music that has evolved slowly into something resembling song-formed work after years of uneven noise jams. On Surrender to the Fantasy, there is tenderness, there is evil, there are curious moments of shambolic beauty. As ever, there is vocalist Elisa Ambrogio unceremoniously forming craggy bits of lyrical catnip by the boatload.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
