Daring Ear - "Ideal Sound" cassette


Magnetic South is happy to announce the release of "Ideal Sound" by Daring Ear on limited edition cassette on September 27th. Daring Ear is the new solo project from Aaron Deer (The Horns of Happiness, Wee Giant, former The Impossible Shapes and John Wilkes Booze) and is a departure from solo works of the past. Basement drumsets and fuzzy guitars are switched for classic 80s drum machines and ramshackle synths. Electro-psych joins forces with Deer's in the clouds croon. Further release information still forth-coming. Keep yer ears open.

Wee Giant "Weetoww"


Oakland, CA via Bloomington, IN's Wee Giant released their first and, so far, only full-length recording in the Spring of 2009. Here's what we said about it upon its release:
Exploration of the depths of the sea and the weightless moon meet distorted keys and classic beat-psych. Wee Giant bring the party and the trip.

Fascinating. Aaron Deer and Peter King practice electro saber duelery. The tape itself vibrates.
