It seems like everyone has that one friend that makes extraordinarily good music for their age. My good friend, Steve, who blogs about films over at Hightop Satchel, told me about his friend from school, Zach, who makes music with a friend under the name, Glitter Bones. Zach sent me his music, and I was more than willing to share this with all of you. Returning The Magic is a glorious leap into a beautiful psych-pop atmosphere. The vocals are distantly hazy, like a tiny figment of your imagination, and the electronics are suburb whether it be dance-y or mega-trippy beats. The 7-minute opener, “Glow In The Dark”, jams into a blissful world, where dancing around in any manner is encouraged. The two middle tracks are the shortest but get to the point much quicker, whether it be a summer fog (“Erial Celestial Vision”), or a lo-fi techno track (“Spell Legend”). “Race To Heaven” is a triumphant finisher to an absolutely excellent release from these young kids. I try not to say this very often, only for when artists actually do it right, but Glitter Bones acknowledge the best aspects of Animal Collective. Now I hope a comparison to Animal Collective doesn’t turn you away, because you’d be really missing out on this.
