Mister Lies brought me to “Cat Gotcha Tongue?!” after posting it with the caption,”WOW WOW WOW I know it’s January but I think I found my favorite track of 2013.”
The last track I got so excited about was Cashmere Cat’s “Mirror Maru.” I therefore shouldn’t have found it surprising that the two have similarly exotic sounds. This is the type of music that makes you want to invent words to describe it. For “Mirror Maru,” I invented a whole story. This time, however, I’m going to hold my tongue and let you bask in amazing bewilderment. I will say that Magma’s voice is the perfectly unexpected dressing for a mix of playful electronic pop.
If you’re as fascinated as I am to hear more, then follow Magma on SoundCloud while awaiting release of his debut EP An Electric Purple, coming soon. And happily download a free mp3 of “Cat Gotcha Tongue?!?” here.
