Computer Magic | A Confession

February 17, 2014 at 3:18 pm Leave a comment


I’ve never really viewed Computer Magic’s musical output in terms of stages, like I do with many other artists. It’s natural to think that way about a musician or band. Perhaps, it’s the way she’s released songs, often a single at a time. And she never quite sounds the same as she did the song before. She’s a true musical explorer, willing to use all kinds a genres, from disco to 80s-synth, to a touch of spacey-soul (which manifests itself most in her outward musical persona). It’s her adventurousness that I enjoy most, which is part of the reason why I liked her video for the “End of Time” so much, where she walks around New York wearing an astronaut suit. It’s a clever concept, but it also works as a metaphor for how I view her musical acumen. The music of Computer Magic goes as Danz goes, which appears to be anywhere and everywhere, releasing a slew of EPs, a split 7-inch, lots of fantastic singles, some covers, and even two full-length LPs released only in Japan. Now, she’s re-releasing her cheekily-titled EP, “Extra Stuff”, on vinyl in April, after posting this latest track, “A Confession”. Whew. Well, “A Confession” is one of the best tracks Computer Magic has created, with its gorgeous molasses-slow downtempo, hypnotically spaced-out vocals, and the muted feelings of love within the lyrics: “Dying to say that I like you / Can’t always say what I want to … anymore.” Note: All lyrics are unofficial.
