"Scott Beschta, Milwaukee's own Syd Barrett, has been recording tracks on his own since his early days of living with Erik Kowalski (Casino Versus Japan) in 1998. Magic Arrows represents exactly the kind of lo-fi psychedelic sound that Wobblyhead built the label upon: Sampler, guitar, bass, keyboard and effects all recorded onto cassette tapes. It's the drum loops of DJ Shadow, the genius pop hook sensibilities of Brian Wilson and the psychedelic drones of Spacemen 3. Repetition is the flagship concept here, as the music requests your presence to investigate the darker corners of the song field. Sweet Heavenly Angel Of Death brings to mind the sensory overloaded urgency of David Crosby's 'If I Could Only Remember My Name,' as it is a shambolic masterpiece, meandering but transcendentally so, full of frayed beats and hazy blissful melodies. The incongruities are left in the mix, and it's all the better for it."
