new album + Magnet on The O.C. and KCRW Sep. 19, 2004

A new Magnet album is progressing well on the Devil’s Island near Bergen, Norway. Tracks underway include “The Bird Can Never Fly”, “Deadlock”, “Duracellia”, “Believe” and “I Miss Her So”. We have a few cool plans for October and November to get it all wrapped up after the gig at Airwaves Festival, Iceland. We hope to have the new album out across Europe in Spring 2005.

“Lay Lady Lay” will feature in Episode 5 of the new series in US of The O.C (the series where Summer finally gets it on with Seth!). Magnet & Gemma Hayes “Lay Lady Lay” gets a very cool 2mins + sequence.

Nic Harcourt is being very good to us at KCRW. He’s played “Everything’s Perfect”, “Lay Lady Lay” and “The Day We Left Town” on his morning show recently, you should tune in ahead of album release in US…hopefully there’ll be some more to come.

slant magazine review Sep. 11, 2004

For an artist as influenced by the dusty Western soundscapes of Ennio Morricone as he is by the stellar electronica of Air, Johansen manages to knit a surprisingly cohesive sonic tapestry out of strings, brass, acoustic guitar, tinkling toy piano sounds, and electronic flourishes.

Check out the latest review of “On Your Side” from Slant Magazine (4/5).
