Here We Go Magic – ‘A Different Ship’

A different ship? You bet it’s different. Fuck knows what they are, but let’s call Thom Yorke faves HWGM the Yank Field Music. This is because like the brothers Brewis, the Brooklyn-based quintet traverse an unplaceable pop-era on grooves, prog chops and a spellbinding ennui, sounding effortless throughout.

A throwback to diffident mavericks of the ’70s, with an unassuming pop nous ‘I Believe In Action’ gets tropical over a slow-release ascent, while ‘Make Up Your Mind’ conjures weird bliss from a Beefheartian boogie. But it’s ‘How Do I Know’ that brings the house down – a weightless sprint stranded between joy and lonely disconnection. Intense and sublime guitar music.
