Resonant Resident

A glorious milestone for No Magic this week as we feature our first ever live, in studio performanceMatt B — who was previously on the old show talking about his new modular synth hobby — is back on, this time with a suitcase full of circuits and performing a composition especially for the show. He also curates a selection of works from other Bay Area modular synth artists, many of whom you can find at the monthly Resonant Frequencies events over in Oakland.

We also feature the new record from Santa Barbara two-piece Mexico City Blondes, their new record Blush is a delight.
