Psychemagik Presents: Magik Sunset
Released: 21st October 2016
Crate diggers extraordinaire Psychemagik present a stellar collection of American private press yacht rock and sublime outsider, sun-drenched folk. All fully licensed, the detective work here must have been exhaustive. The long anticipated follow up to Magik Cyrkles and Magik Sunrise, Magik Sunset has fast become one of the most regularly played records on the Monorail stereo. From the acid-touched outsiderisms of Bobby Brown to the fist-pumping near-anthem Misunderstood by Greg Sonnleitner, to the impeccable Fleetwood Mac-ist Crossection to the funk-infused likes of The Electric Connection, the feeling is good and the going is smooth. Magik Sunset sounds like a Now That's What I Call Music 1976 that never was.
