Today’s KEXP’s Song of the Day went out out to “Collector” by here We Go Magic! Here’s what the folks from Seattle had to say:
It seems like the band used all of its allotted energy for their sophomore release on “Collector,” a burning, five-minute shooting star of energy through an album that otherwise feels like it’s suspended in zero gravity. While most Here We Go Magic songs don’t hesitate to take their time, “Collector” has an energetic urgency, rarely stopping to catch its breath and never drawing out a note longer than it needs to. Temple succinctly sings “I’ve got a mild fa-sci-na-tion,” quickly and carefully pronoucing every syllable of “fascination” before going on to playfully muse on collectors and the things they collect.
