“[The songs] unleash this funny little voice to scamper behind your chair and play with your toes. Meanwhile the beats are as great and as simple as the music out of a magic door… This is what opening that door sounds like in 2013.”
Around 2004 Electric Musique was formed. A number of “experimental” albums and EPs were released. However, it wasn’t until 2006 that Electric Musique really broke onto the scene with the hit album DiscoTechnician.
Anyways, Electric Musique spent the summer and fall of 2006 playing shows comprised mostly of songs from DiscoTechnician. After 2006, Electric Musique returned to more “experimental” music and released that “experimental” music prolifically. Prolifically. DiscoTechnician is really the only album Clark Magic, the f**kin’ mastermind behind Electric Musique, has called a “studio album.”
“Yeah. It’s a studio album – I used a mic and recorded the album with a computer. That’s a studio,” said Clark Magic.
Anyways, in the time since DiscoTechnician was recorded, Clark Magic, the f**kin’ mastermind, joined a number of side projects including The Stairwells, 2 In Tents, Penny Sleepover, The Cookie Is Yum, Thunder Tusk, Unionville, The In Turns, and a lot of other stuff having to do with music.
Anyways, some people have wondered (even lost sleep wondering) if Electric Musique would l ever return to the studio. It’s been seven years.
Well, the answer may be “yes.”
Rumors are swirling – SWIRLING! – that Electric Musique may be recording a studio album right now and that that album could be out this spring or summer or whenever it gets done.
