Artist: GARMENT DISTRICT, THE
Title: If You Take Your Magic Slow
Format: LP
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"If You Take Your Magic Slow is the debut full-length LP from multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Barontis The Garment District, with help from a few friends and family—her cousin Lucy Blehar provides lead vocals throughout. If You Take Your Magic Slow is very much a structured album with its diverse tracklist meticulously strung together. A mix of surreal instrumentals and subtle turns conjures outdoor walks in transitional atmospheres and landscapes, nature hikes in the city, sunny days that are okay with becoming cloudy, warm music full of feeling that remains comfortably easy-going despite the meticulous care given to its sophisticated orchestration and arrangements. This eclecticism creates something complex yet accessible, loose but direct. Baron mixes pastoral psychedelia with arƞul minimalist post-punk experimentation and a subtle approach to library music, soundtracks as “pop,” with just enough droney dreamy color to fill it all in. If You Take Your Magic Slow doesntit follow any templates or gimmicks: its focus is on being true to its musicality, songwriting, and honest approach to compelling contemporary easy listening—something we are quite fond of. A perfect summertime record. If You Take Your Magic Slow follows Barontis first Garment District recordings, Melody Elder, a 2011 cassette on Night-People, and a 7” the following year on La Station Radar (featuring a remix from Sonic Boom). The 10-song LP was recorded both with Greg Matecko at Frankenstein Sound Labs in Hazelwood, PA, and at Jennifertis home in Pittsburgh. It features Lucy Blehar on lead vocals, as well as contributions by her brother Jeff Baron (The Essex Green, The Ladybug Transistor); her husband Greg Langel, Matt Booth (bass); and Chris Parker (drums)." - Night People.
