Magic Arm – Outdoor Games

I’ve read about the comparison with the Beta Band and while such a notion seems a little daft at first the fog does lift as the brass kicks in towards the end of ‘Widths And Heights’. Yep, an unmistakable ring to the climatic end of ‘Dry The Rain’ with the result that Magic Arm is not entirely in a league of his own. Pretty close though for Manchester based Marc Rigelsford spins the kind of ingenious melodies that we normally associate with giants such as Grandaddy. ‘Outdoor Games’ is a thing of beauty that originally surfaced on an EP of the same name in 2007 but latterly appeared on Magic Arm’s bright debut ‘Makes Lists Do Something’. It unveils its mojo slowly but what a potent and honeyed tale it spins. KD
