The Magic are brothers Geordie and Evan Gordon, from small-town Guelph, on the outskirts of Toronto. Having grown up in a musical house, their father, folk singer James Gordon, wrote "Mining for Gold" (famously covered by the Cowboy Junkies). For their own band however, they eschew their dad's acoustic folk roots and have made a record as equally indebted to the effervescent pop of Phoenix, the soulful studio slickness of Hall & Oates, and the white funk of Talking Heads. Geordie sings, plays guitar and keys, with Evan on bass, backing vocals and production. They're also joined by their friend Sylvie Smith from the band Evening Hymns on additional vocals, notably on the frustrated lover's plea "Call Me Up." Elsewhere on the record, they take in syncopated disco rhythms and languid '80s funk, while also peppering every song with effortless big FM pop choruses. On 180 gram vinyl with download code.
