Mages Get Magestic
A group of musicians is taking Eau Claire by the ears, invoking its listeners with a kind of magic that dares the soul to move, with their latest EP release, Magestic. Mages is a band made up of five gifted musicians who have crafted a kind of songwriting that can be defined as folk, and other times as a bluegrass twang, an up-tempo pop, or a soulful rock. Their music stretches the boundaries by exploring what is beyond the world, into the infinite. Pop in their recent album and expect to feel the music long after it stops playing. Their songs suggest an organic aura that is experimental and – best of all – created by local artists. Get a preview of Magestic on their MySpace, at their upcoming Bottle & Barrel performance on Dec. 3, or on vinyl and digital download card at The Local Store.
