I’m excited to announce that the recording and mixing of my solo debut album under my full name, James Marlon Magas, is complete. It is now in production. The world of vinyl production has been a bit unpredictable in recent times but I’ve managed to secure a production schedule. Planning on an October release, so check here or my twitter account for updates.
I’m very happy with how the album turned out and thrilled to collaborate with a few good friends in the process. I jumped out of the driver seat of MAGAS and let the car crash and burn. I changed my sound, changed my name, jumped back on the microphone and upped the ante, overall. I’m very excited to share these new songs with you. More info coming very soon. Watch for concert dates in the fall. Hope to be playing in a town near you.
I’m interviewed on one of my favorite podcasts, The Poundcast, with Dougg Pound and Brent Weinbach. We talk about noise, transcendental meditation and the TRUE concept of social distancing. In After Dark, I talk to the guys about my equipment (synthesizers and stuff) and tell a tale of a man doing something to himself at a book store. It was a true pleasure to catch up with these guys. First hour+ is on Youtube (or Spotify if you’re driving or pretending to work) and there’s a bonus hour (with all the juicy stuff) on After Dark.
Hello, Friends! I’ve reactivated my website for 2021. I was recently gave a career-spanning interview with Glassworks’ Coffee in their Spillin’ the Beans Column. I talk about my early experiences in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (the U.P., as it’s known), through my experiences with my old bands, all the way up to present-day, where I talk about my upcoming album on Midwich.
