Pedro Magina - "Miyagi"
The Animal Collective fan in me will likely always remember Lisbon as the place Panda Bear picked to record Person Pitch and to live with his wife and child. But now I can add Pedro Magina and his music to my list of Lisbon-based associations. Magina's Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five tape is out now on Not Not Fun Records, and though his music is nowhere near the sunburned, tropic-tinged sounds of Person Pitch, it manages to be just as meditative and every bit as excellent. Britt of Not Not Fun was nice enough to send over "Miyagi," and its undulating synthesizers have been transporting me ever since. Fans of the spaced-out sounds of Megazord, Oneohtrix Point Never and Zonotope should enjoy it. Meanwhile, the other songs streaming at Magina's MySpace sound a bit more subdued. Regardless, these are blissfully ambient songs that shimmer and soar even as they're soused in Lisbon's coastal waters. Buy Magina's Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five tape from Not Not Fun.
