Album Review: Here We Go Magic

    Here We Go Magic's sophomore LP-- produced by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead)-- shows a significant amount of promise in its first breaths. Opener "Hard To Be Close" sets a brilliant stage with its layering. First single "Make Up Your Mind" is springy and supple, the kind of dynamic runaround that can hold your attention for minutes with nothing but a simple riff and the rotating accents around it. It might be one of the best songs of the year. But it turns out this building of layers would be the essential blueprint for all of A Different Ship, and it doesn't always work. It's a collection of songs that all feel like a big white room with a variety of colorful characters constantly moving in and out of doors on either end (sometimes a lot of them, sometimes none at all). The problem isn't the movement (which is always engaging), it's the base of what we're working with being too drab to stand on its own when there's no action.
