The Earth Years
 
The Earth Years Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $16.00
Artist: Magic Bus
 
 
Quantity:
 

Brand new release from this The Devon, U.K band who have been weaving together their own cosmic tapestry for 10 years.  The line-up has changed a little which has influenced a change in their musical palette but Magic Bus remain firmly in the territory of the Canterbury and American West Coast sounds, tinged with Eastern mysticism and 70’s prog.  Magic Bus are not here to amaze us with wondrous technique (although they can certainly play). They do not come to bedazzle us with ground-breaking new sounds (but inspired by previous psychedelic fore-runners they undoubtedly produce beguiling and melodic music). They do not come to lecture or preach to us, but do have a simple message and straightforward approach, expressed skillfully and with real feeling. The lockdown has severely limited us all to our homes physically, but Magic Bus have produced some joyful music for our minds where we can journey spiritually anywhere. It may not change the world, but just for a few a few minutes the world will feel a better place, and isn’t that worth something these days?  At a time when the world has been facing great anxiety and suffering maybe what we do need is music filled with positivity and dare I say it… Love!  So put away your worries, open your mind and get on the Magic Bus!” – TheProgressiveAspect.net   The new album by Magic Bus arrives with perfect timing.   Not only does it have a summery shine to it, instead of wallowing in the gloom and doom around us, it is peaceful and positive.  But it does that without being shallow or frivolous.  The album takes an earthly view on the human experience.  The old ‘make love, not war’ adage may be implied rather than explicit, but there is no mistaking the hippie lineage.  For those who have followed the band from their wonderful self-titled album back in 2010 to this, their fourth release, know that there is nothing contrived about them.  They practice the lifestyle that they preach, live in the moment and are not in a particular need to go anywhere.  As a result their music is simultaneously lazy and full of energy.” – Popgruppen.com  GREAT!!
