I’ll be playing an intimate show in Chicago at Danny’s Tavern on Tuesday, September 1st at Danny’s Tavern (1947 W. Dickens), as part of Beau Wanzer’s h.o.t.h. night.
My new 12″ Heads Plus is available for mail order via Midwich. Order it HERE. You can also get it digitally from Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Boomkat, Juno, Beatport and just about any other place digital music is sold. If you’re in Chicago, stop in at Reckless Records and grip a vinyl copy from me.
RESIDENT ADVISOR–Justin Farrar
“Five tracks of twitching and scuzz-stained electronics…delivers the goods: amidst smothering layers of distortedgrime, it has a maniacally bopping groove…” READ MORE
TINY MIX TAPES--MUKQS
“If the styles colloquially labeled “mutant techno” and “trip metal” in the US underground can loosely claim any sort of spiritual godfather figure, in terms of both sonic vocabularies and label/distribution practices, Chicago-by-way-of-Ann-Arbor champion zoner Jim Magas is that person.” READ MORE
BULL TONGUE REVIEW–Marc Masters
“Magas is the mellower, more stoic assassin. His grooves on the five-song Heads Plus EP even get smooth at times, relying more on repetition than din to squeeze your brain into a beat-vise…the method is practically surgical, at least in the sense that when you’re on these songs’ table, you’re anesthetized enough to not notice all the incisions and stitches until you realize they’ve already been made.”
Heads Plus was released on my own label, Midwich Productions. We also put out Moon Pool and Dead Band and have records coming from Viands, Mick Travis and more. Stop over at the Midwich site and check it out.
