Album Review

Deep Magic – “Closed Eyes” – [Debacle Records]

surferrosa   9/5/2012   A Library, CD

We are going for a dip in the deepest, most ominously murky blue, where you can only see a couple feet ahead of you. Deep Magic creates something from the dream world…an underwater, opiate, reverie. Alex Gray, this one man project out of LA, constructs heavily layered, glimmering and shimmering, hazy sound-worlds.. riddled with heavenly drone, found sounds, tape manipulations and the warped and worbly. Ethereal swells and oscillations…the sonic caress of ringing chimes or meandering piano lines. This album is absolute elation…meditation..sedation.. polluted or enhanced by the slightest, most subtle touch of static. The occasional warp will remind you of turntable three. Closed Eyes is a tranquilizing orchestra of bittersweet loveliness. Tracks track if you are so inclined. -Surfer Rosa
