Magic Trix by Brooklynite Xenia Rubinos might
cause an initial reaction like you are being tasered
(bro). There is little to compare to the sharp, thick
spine of a keyboard sound that shoots at you from the
very first moments. Surprisingly, the record's
aggressive sound is achieved without the use of
guitars. Xenia, together with drummer/sound magician
Marco Buccelli, create a dozen aggressively danceable
songs. An oblique assemblage of uncommon rhythms,
powerhouse vocals and dance-til-you-puke energy
combine to make Magic Trix one of the most exciting
debut albums in years.
Having toured the US nationally including official showcases at
SXSW, Xenia continues touring steadily in support of her
album release on Ba Da Bing Records. Xenia's music has been celebrated by fans and
critics alike with features in MTV, VICE, NPR, Fader, WNYC, The New Yorker.
"One of our favorite artists of the year, truly new and exciting!" - NPR
"Absurdist pop powered by soul-fueled vocals" - VICE
"Somehow she manages to always do weird s**t you weren't ready for, while making it a delight to listen to at the same time!"- MTV
"Standout act, a lo-fi, minimalist sound sometimes likened to Bjork."- Billboard Magazine
Brooklyn-based musical collective Railbird recently released new single "Jump Ship" just ahead of a July residency at Pete's Candy Store. The brand new track features Sean Rowe (ANTI), whose Cohen-esque baritone is deeply soulful, and Sarah Barthel of Phantogram (Barsuk), whose breathy vocals are most often heard over booming electronic beats. It's no wonder this unlikely collaboration meets in the middle with Railbird – A band accustom to divergent thinking.
Railbird, the brainchild of bandleader Sarah K. Pedinotti (SKP), is a solid cast of multi-instrumentalists whose sound crosses many genres and encompasses complex rhythms and swirling bursts of guitars and synths around Sarah's angelic voice and truly unique style of songwriting.
After self-releasing their debut album No One in 2010, Railbird was invited to perform at SXSW, CMJ, and the 4th Annual Roots Picnic in Philly. No One, co-produced by Jeremy Gustin and SKP in Queens and upstate NY, is a conceptual album that took over one year to complete. The album is nuanced, dark, rhythmic, and haunting and draws comparisons to Bjork, Kate Bush, Grizzly Bear, and Dirty Projectors.
Railbird is currently recording demos and rehearsing in a cabin at Lake George. Catch the band for their summer residency each Wednesday in July at Pete's Candy Store. 10pm.
