Magnet : Where Happiness Lives EP
So cuddly it almost makes you think of 1999 without spitting...
Typical. Six months after the High Court convicts NAM of aggravated tedium and the Fashion Police start confiscating comfortable footwear from rehearsal rooms throughout the country, someone finally gets it right. Norway’s Magnet have clearly heard 80s pastoral wonderstrummers The Lilac Time and worked out how this Stoned In A Pine Forest business is done proper. Your drummer must resemble a toy steam train three miles away, your pedal steel must twa-yang as though plucked by the pixies and your lyrics must concern being dumped by a blue-eyed girl in gingham. So cuddly it almost makes you think of 1999 without spitting.
