Magnetic Flux

ears & eyes

Chicago, IL

Caught these guys at the Empty Bottle a week or two back. Exactly right in our wheelhouse. They had that jazz/rock merger attack pinned, that ol' tightrope. I enjoy that the group is not afraid to delve deep into noisy rants and still create plenty of opportunities to declare themselves prim and proper 'musicians'. That's a respectable thing these days. I found the guitarist after the show and jawed his ear for what he seemed to think was way too long about his influences, objectives, contemporaries, things like that. And i just kept saying more words and he just kept staring at me all freaked-out looking. Some people don't like to talk all that much shop I suppose.

Definitely listen in, here.

And buy the shit, here.

new link for the CD!^

Hi I just stumbled upon your blog while looking for the OOP Lynx album... What a pleasant surprise! I've bookmarked and plan to visit from time to time to see what new stuff you've found/posted. This Zing! stuff is great.
