Hey so on Friday we tweeted (@BostonMusicBlog) that local trio Night Fruit were giving away a free demo download of their upcoming Triangles EP.
Well, a funny thing happened over the weekend -- we never stopped listening to it. From the slow rumble-growl of opener “Sea Blood” -- our MP3 of the Week on July 22, ahem -- to the holy shit it’s the ghost of early Sunny Day Real Estate vibe in closing jam “Lover,” this teaser collection no doubt has us amped up for a proper release from the trio made up of Amanda Dellevigne and Jonathan Gill formerly of Hot Box (RIP) and Luke Sullivan of Left Hand Does (still going strong!).
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.
