Mp3 of the Week: Magic People

DOWNLOAD: Magic People, "Laundry Night" (mp3)

On its face, the latest bit from avant-psychpunx Magic People is a wobbly, passive-aggressive love song to the girl whom ringleader John Manson bumps into at the washing machine every week. But like many Magic People songs, it moves quickly from the mundane into a vast, scary, existential crisis: Manson could’ve called this one "Judgment Night" if the title weren’t already taken. The rapidly evolving People are releasing their new album, Oh Decay (Mister Records) upstairs at the Middle East this Tuesday, but be warned that past behavior is no guarantee of future performance: the Middle East line-up will include a drummer/saxophonist and a keyboard/drum machine expert.
