Album Review

A collaboration pairing alternarock heavyweights Swervedriver (and Toshack Highway) leader Adam Franklin and Interpol drummer Sam Fogarino, Magentic Morning's five-song debut is quietly tantalizing. The duo's obvious mutual admiration spilled over into creative endeavor, with Fogarino writing cloudy chords and Franklin expounding on them — all tracked by Interpol engineer Claudius Mittendorfer in New York's Jimi Hendrix-built Electric Ladyland. The results are akin to the more laconic-beautiful moments of each's past. Like Franklin's recent solo Bolts of Melody and Swervedriver sorties like "She Weaves a Tender Trap" and "Cars Converge on Paris," there's no rush in the laid-back, piano-prettied "Yesterday's Flowers" (a similar metaphor as Rolling Stones' "Dead Flowers") or the music box riff of "Cold War Kids" (lyrical reference to David Bowie's "Heroes": "And we laughed as though nothing would fall") and its sonorous light trip-hop instrumental version, "Cold War Kids (Get Claudius)." "Don't Go to Dream State" doesn't take its own advice, with ghostly hovering glassine guitars and a neo-spaghetti western tint, and the one up-tempo number is a beautiful cover of the Kinks' "The Way Love Used to Be," one of Ray Davies' immortal yearning pop songs from 1971's underrated Percy. "I don't mind leaving it all behind" sings Franklin on "Yesterday's Flowers," a description of this EP's soft ‘n' hazy psychedelia.
