Premiere: Midnight Magic – Free From Your Spell
Order Vinyl: http://bit.ly/FreeFromYourSpe
It’s not every day in our industry that a body of music comes along so profound, so powerful and excellent that it borders on perfection. Well folks, TODAY is one of those incredible days! Three words, MIDNIGHT fucking MAGIC; the impossibly spectacular Brooklyn disco band that delivered hits like “Beam Me Up” and “Drop Me A Line” now stands stronger than ever with a new album of material on Soul Clap Records.
“Free From Your Spell” is as much a continuation of Midnight Magic’s theatrical modern disco sound as it is a departure into something deeper, and more grown. With a classic Fun Machine as pacemaker, the album twists and turns through moods and tempos. The tracks are all separate but intentional intro’s and outro’s connect the story into a listener’s paradise.
Enough of our praise, read what the band has to say and let the MUSIC do the real talking:
“For our second LP Free From Your Spell, we found ourselves digging deeper into a cosmic realm, searching for different moods through harmony, dub, and texture. Always striving to make the beats and bass lines funky while balancing the elements of a big group of people and preserving space within the music.”
Fall of 2016 sees Midnight Magic ready to enchant us once more with the much-anticipated birth of their 2nd studio album, the wondrously eclectic Free From Your Spell. Going back to their roots in Los Angeles, Morgan Wiley, and Tiffany Roth, alongside the rest of the boogie nonet, have prepared a refined feast of genre-bending songs.
The ever so diverse moods of Free From Your Spell make it a seductive journey. With each song mixed seamlessly into the next, the record coalesces into one long disco odyssey, reminiscing Giorgio Moroder and Donna Summer’s concept albums “Four Seasons of Love” and “A Love Trilogy”. Moods, genres, and styles intertwine like an aural kaleidoscope, the album electrifying with its striking harmony. Whilst exuberantly borrowing from past decades, Free From Your Spell more than holds its own as a self-assured, innovative body of work.
Midnight Magic’s Free From Your Spell is an offer one can’t refuse. An attractive deal in the form of disco escapism, traveling through its various shades, emotions, and incarnations, a comprehensive revival of the genre for modern ears. It’s Studio 54, It’s Moroder, Amanda Lear, Gino Soccio, and Grace Jones. It’s a whole palette of 1980’s R’n’B and cosmic funk. Despite all the music references of past eras Free From Your Spell is very much a current album, a mature demonstration of genuine skills in songwriting, a multi-instrumental banquet of sounds, a coherent collection of ambitious dance tracks and a beautiful celebration of eclecticism. Add to this some of Tiffany Roth’s most memorable vocals to date and you arrive at one of the year’s most exciting releases. There is a strong reason for both “midnight” and “magic” in the name of the band after all.
