Magic Mind is Sandy's magnum opus. On their new album, the San Francisco band led by Alexi Glickman crafts a collection of songs combining inventive studio productions with timeless songwriting influenced by the likes of Bach, Brian Wilson, and The Beatles. Giant sized harmonies pair with echoing guitar and colorful synthesizers conjuring the spirit of epic 70's surf films. After releasing Chime in 2018, a much loved album recorded in a seaside cabin, Alexi imagined a collection of songs that would invite us to glimpse an alternate world. Looking beyond the lo-fi recording techniques of their back catalog, the band collaborated with studio whiz David Glasebrook (Royal Oakie Records) to achieve a unique fidelity that retains the rough edges of Sandy's signature sound and places them in a 3D cinematic soundscape. The album loosely follows an archetypal couple as they move through a mystical realm, encountering both benevolent teachers and violent apparitions attempting to tear them apart. Through it all, they are bound by love and shared dreams. Title track "Magic Mind" celebrates both the brilliance and strife that accompanies the complex minds in the Sandy's creative family. Rather than romanticizing their suffering, the song delivers moments of sublime catharsis and transcendence. Meanwhile, lead single "Sami & Sandy" is a lost 80's cassette pop paen of new love and hope in the face of tragedy, recorded by Jeremy Harris. "Ghost Lake" is a sun faded ballad featuring the shredding of guitar legend Brett Garsed. "Sunken Cathedral", a sound painting inspired by Debussy, conjures the landscape of Northern California's Mt. Tamalpais and the surrounding valleys and coastlines the band calls home.. "Ghost Lake" borrows it's title from a 1978 dance choreographed by Eddie for his Santa Monica-based company Rodeo ex Machina, featuring a family of Samurai soaring above a cracked desert basin.
