According to our meticulous records, "Magic" is the first outing of 2017 from Wolf + Lamb and Soul Clap regular Nick Monaco. The San Fran man is in fine form on the title track, a loose and low-slung combination of rubbery dub disco aesthetics, Midnight Magic bass and delay-laden vocal passages. It's basically left-of-centre disco for those who like their grooves heavy and organic. "Elliott" is slightly more Balearic in tone, with lilting, almost Hawaiian guitar motifs and loved-up electronics rising above another low-slung, alternative '80s style disco groove. Wisely, Monaco has also included the kind of hazy, hushed vocal that sounds like it was recorded in the midst of a particularly saucer-eyed night out.
