MAGIK MARKERS – ” 2020 “

Posted: May 15, 2021 in MUSIC

Here we are “2020”, exploding like a dream. Processing today’s numbed nation, considering mysteries of growing up and being older (like a memory of the future from your youth (not how you expected, but still your life)), Magik Markers rub upon their roots, art-noise jamming their way into non-linear song-sense and raw, beautiful music all at once.

2020’s done come and gone; a fuzzy void of lost time and lost opportunity. But just when you thought you were safe, Magik Markers 2020 release is back, in the form of a long-awaited repress of Magik Markers‘ all-new album from last fall. 2020 offers proof positive that work born of uncertain times can transcend the untethered ether of those dark days. The Markers built 2020 in this same timeless fashion they’ve always worked in – fighting like fungi through the cracks in the sidewalk of the past 50 years. A thinking fungi – one that will outlive us all!

In honour of this moment of eternity passing us by, like a near-miss meteor 2020 quicksilver ripper “Find You Ride”, receives the video treatment – better late than never, wink wink! – with a bouncy shakedown from an assembled dream team of Chris Kerr and Jay Meyers streaming directly to the bleeding edge of your orbitofrontal cortex.

The imitable Chris Kerr’s (aka Neo Country) surrealist imagery roils and revels in a synthetic animation from worlds unknown. Coalescing with shards of guitar and motorik grooves both improvised and planned, Kerr/Meyers‘ video and the Markers’ music represent for a sound “that existed before there were mouths…before there were ears”.

Track from “2020,” available on LP, CD & Streaming from Drag City Inc., released 23rd october 2020.  the second LP pressing of “2020″. Items will ship out/or around May 11th.
