Here We Go Magic

A Different Ship

(Secretly Canadian)

Grade: B+

With Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich at the helm, Brooklyn's Here We Go Magic have basically turned in the album that the former band should have made immediately following In Rainbows. Not that Here We Go Magic would have necessarily needed Godrich's help, per se, because the vast majority of songs to be found on the record reach the pinnacle of A-list indie rock material, twisting their way inside your head and staying there giddily. The album is a tunefully, poppy affair, clearly influenced by '70s Krautrock, with a completely layered sound that invites you to peel away at it go get to its carefully structured secrets.
