Today’s KEXP’s Song of the Day went out out toÂ “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 â€śCollector,â€ť a burning, five-minute shooting star of energy through an album that otherwise feels like itâ€™s suspended in zero gravity. While most Here We Go Magic songs donâ€™t hesitate to take their time, â€śCollectorâ€ť has an energetic urgency, rarely stopping to catch its breath and never drawing out a note longer than it needs to. Temple succinctly sings â€śIâ€™ve got a mild fa-sci-na-tion,â€ť quickly and carefully pronoucing every syllable of â€śfascinationâ€ť before going on to playfully muse on collectors and the things they collect.
