Boston’s children of heavy pzyk, Magic Shoppe channel the psychotic mania of Raw Power-era Iggy Pop with a brooding darkness drenched in lashings of reverberation and fuzz. Forming amongst a plethora of garage and indie bands, the group went for a something a bit more cacophonous and driving, which allows the listener to sink deep into the sea of noise which envelopes them.
As Louder Than War said, “Magic Shoppe are that point of time between 1966 and 1967 when the regency look went LSD: add to this a dash of… the wonkier end of post-punk … and a 21st century nous and you have something really special.”
