This just in from our old pal, former 7D intern and current correspondent with The Deli New England, Will Ryan: his band, Neon Magus, is set to release its long awaited debut album Watching the Watcher with a show Saturday night at … um, well, I'm actually not supposed to tell you. Of course, my merely mentioning a show happening at a venue that I'm not allowed to write about should give Burlington readers a pretty good idea of where said secret(ish) show happening. Hopefully the cops aren't as quick on the uptake and/or are too busy hounding "undesirables" on our precious Marketplace. Still, you didn't hear it from me. Nor did you hear that Nuda Veritas, Ghost Weapons and The Le Duo will also perform.
What you can hear from me is a track from the record, which was recorded at Thee Mighty Hotel2Tango in Montreal. The album, released on Burlington imprint Aether Everywhere, was engineered and mixed by Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Godspeed! You Black Emperor) and features guest turns from Thee Silver Mount Zion's Efrim Menuck, The Le Duo's JB Ledoux and experimental auteur Greg Davis, the last of whom mastered the recording.
So without further ado, I give you "Andromeda, Pt 2 (Spirit World Daydream)" by Neon Magus, from their new album, Watching the Watcher.
