The Magician and The Gates of Love

Mn, I posted this on facebook but it needs a more permanent home here at Der Spookhaus. Nathan is a friend and fan from Langley, British Columbia and he does music as "The Magician." He's teamed up with the band The Gates of Love and the result is splefindiferous pop magic. To me his sound is a hybrid of The Boy Least Likely To, Throbbing Gristle and The Beatles. This one sounds more like the latter; it's very pretty songwriting and performance. I like it when someone can go weird on one track and total pop accessability on another. This song is called "Take A Trip."

  1. I think I had my first poutine at the Costco in Langly. It may have been at an A&W in White Rock or Surry... but I've certainly had one in Langly.
