White Magic Dat Rosa Mel Apibus on 2LP
White Magic is the songwriting and vocal lyricism of Mira Billotte (Quix*o*tic) engaged by the talented likes of 'Sleepy' Dough Shaw, Jim White (Dirty Three), Tim Dewit (Gang Gang Dance), Tim Barnes, Samara Lubelski, Shahzad Ismaily, Jesse Lee, Karen LeBlanc and Brad Truax. White Magic's debut full length album Dat Rosa Mel Apibus is an elaborate evolution from the the group's first release. It is a journey which sets forth into an untamed musical landscape, finding the familiar in unusual streams of new sound - a new music. A music that knows the past, but does not repeat it. Torch songs ride into dark ragas and devotional dub with prophetic resonance. Influences of African and tropical guitar rise and reel through the harmony. The album is a movement of great proportion, exploring the emotional and the spiritual to unbounded and sublime depths!
