Electric Owls, 'Magic Show': Free MP3 of the Day

With his band The Comas on hiatus, Andy Herod's self-produced new project, Electric Owls, embarks on an exploration of musical experimentation while dwelling on the distinctly dark and cryptic with the release of the Magic Show EP.

Aptly titled, the four tracks propagate the mystical spirit of Halloween with many macabre references in songs such as "Cannibal Superstar" and "Darken Me," both lyrically dredging up feelings of death and dethronement put against a backdrop of slightly offbeat--yet melodic--pop hooks and intertwining harmonies. Less heavy songs also appear on the release, such as the unusually jaunty and whimsical title track, evoking surrealistic images and a dreamy musical style equal parts nocturnal and charged--perhaps better identifiable as an electric owl.
