MP3 of the Week: Magic People, "The Pigeon and the Eggs"


Out there on the ’nets, there’s been a pretty steady buzz concerning You Are the Magic People — the latest full-length offering from said MAGIC PEOPLE — since shortly after it leaked late last year. And it’s easy to hear why. “Fuck the Wind” sounds like an anxiety attack in a Lisa Frank sticker; John Manson’s bass and Al Deaderick’s Arp circle and growl tensely at each other on “I’m Telling You (About the Dutch)”; and on “The Pigeon and the Eggs,” an unsteady clockwork shoves its way through a shambling drone before the song powers itself up into a radiant anti-anthem. It’s the kind of album that will frighten everything else off your iPod — and in addition to having it up for download at, Deaderick’s own Oklo Audio is releasing a limited pressing on blue vinyl. This Monday, Magic People will celebrate the album’s long-awaited release at Charlie’s Kitchen with General Interest, Life Partners, and Brutal Love Masters.
