Danz (aka Computer Magic) lights it up with this new track “Another Science”, a song with a wicked bassline and arcade-game crazy rhythm. It’s a new song off the “A Million Years/Another Science” digital release, which she says will be available within the next few days. The album will be on soundcloud, but limited in number of downloads available. Click here to read archived Their Bated Breath posts about Computer Magic.

Between stints at SXSW and live shows in San Francisco, Miami and Toronto, Computer Magic was putting out some new tunes. Listen to the five-song EP, “Orion”, at her official website or at her soundcloud page. It’s out via Kitsuné. There’s that patented sort of disco-groove flavor in the music, that her fans have come to love. But the record is also a bit of a shift for Computer Magic (aka Danz), with wildly energetic songs like “Help Me”, “Trinity”, and “Moving Forward” bouncing every which way with layered synth, repeated vocals, and funky bass rhythms. Be sure to follow Computer Magic on facebook. Note added April 4th: You can also watch a new video for “Trinity” here. – David D. Robbins Jr.
Computer Magic (aka Danz) is coming off a big year in which she released a 12-inch “Electronic Fences”, and singles “End of Time”, “(Just Like) Starting Over”, and the ‘End of Time” video — called the best video of 2011 by Their Bated Breath. Well, this year she’s already started off with two singles, “Ex-Believer”, and the most recent disco-ed out “Trinity”. You can follow Computer Magic at facebook and twitter. – David D. Robbins Jr.
Computer Magic has a new video out for her single “The End of Time”. As much as I dislike the word, this video is adorable. Well, all the way up until our little sullen astronaut decides, perhaps tragically, to really reach to the moon. It’s a wonderfully shot video, and a cool concept.

Love the sickly sway on this new Computer Magic (aka Danz) dance track, “In So Many Ways”. The synth organ hopscotching it’s way nimbly across a secondary space-out synth melody is just so good. You’ve got to listen and download this one at Computer Magic’s Soundcloud page. Danz really doesn’t do much wrong when it comes to making music. Each one these tracks she unleashes on the listening public are all slightly different stylistically speaking. But they all find a way to become alluring. And in this case, the chorus and kaleidoscopic synthesizer work are both creative and fun. Update: This song comes from a new EP entitled ‘Spectronic’ — which you can download for free here. – David D. Robbins Jr.
Our girl Danz, aka Computer Magic, posted a new 80s electro-dance track on her website. “Grand Junction” is disco-funk with a crazy hook, joyously spacey synth work, and crystal clear female lead vocals: “Grand injunction / We’ve got to figure out our function / I don’t need your sympathy for free / I can live without your function.” – David D.

A COLLABORATION: Eva Hipsey teams up with Brooklyn’s Computer Magic after swapping some sounds and ideas back and forth via the internet. They ended up with five songs, of dreamy synth, drums, sparse vocals, and noises. You’ll hear Danz sing on “Red wet clay of vigor drift”, but the fragile and self-described “shaky” vocal are from Eva Hipsey. This record is a pretty and inventive pairing entitled “Present Themes for Past Places”. You can purchase the record at this bandcamp link. – David D. Robbins Jr.
