This Portland-based, salty Syd Barrett-esque singer credits hearing The White Album with shifting him out of his punky youth. But don’t hold that against him. There’re still just enough miffed jitters hanging around Pyramids, the third album from Joel Magid, to keep it anxiously interesting.
Efficient, droll, kaleidoscopic pop, it’s an up-to-date urbane detour from the psych-garage scene going on down in SF. Sometimes clanky, sometimes spacey, this self-released album comes out on July 7, but we’ve got the premiere stream for you right here. Give it a go below, and check Magid’s remaining tour dates.
Tour Dates for Joel Magid:
July 4th – Portland, OR – Mississippi Studios
August 7th – Newberg, OR – Homie Fest 2015
