November is coming. We know what that means. A bountiful feast amongst loved ones. What will you be thankful for? One thing to look forward to is the release of Magic Bronson’s new album, “Wildlife,” coming out Nov. 4, 2014. Magic Bronson speaks to the eclectic taste of the Los Angeles music scene. They combine aspects of synth rock, hip hop, rap, funk, and electronic dance music (EDM) into one neat package.
Bassist Matthew Lieberman says:
People always seem to ask us what we would label ourselves as. We really do fuse a lot of styles together. I don’t mind if people call us one or the other, but I do like that people have a hard time putting a finger on exactly what or who we sound like.”
You can preview “Wildlife” on SoundCloud. The first track is dreamy and is aptly named “Clouds.” The next song “Shivers” is Magic Bronson’s modern take on the “twist” dance. There’s a music video with dancing and a volleyball game surrounding a couple who look like they’re on an otherwise boring date. Check it out here. To celebrate their new album, they released “Fences” two days ago. The music video features their families now and from home videos of the past. There’s a call and answer for the lyrics. First it’s “good enough just doesn’t make it, kid ya gotta take it into your own hands.” Then, “Oh my god, it’s making sense. When all this time, we’re hanging around, sitting on the fences.” This is great social commentary for our generation. We’re also fond of track eight, “All Night Dog Fight” which is closest to dub step on this album.
The “Wildlife” album is versatile and appropriate to play for those gatherings where people may vary in age and music preferences. You can pre-order it here. You can also watch for the latest news on the band on Facebook or look at their other music videos on Youtube.
