CURRENT: Majical Cloudz – “Bugs Don’t Buzz”

20130327-110856

Majical Cloudz debut album becomes one of the most anticipated albums this year with every new single release. Last year, Cloudz released the excellent Turns Turns Turns EP, featuring one of the best songs of the year, “What That Was.”

Already this year Majical Cloudz released the great “Childhood’s End,” yet he tops even that track with his latest, “Bugs Don’t Buzz.” “The cheesiest songs all end with a smile,” he sings from the outset, only to finish the couplet by warning, “this won’t end with a smile, my love.” And while he is certainly right, the song’s melancholia is enhanced by somber piano notes and ominous synthesized effects, there is a certain joy felt knowing that music can still make you feel.
