Hectic Eclectic Records are delighted to invite you to the Stroud launch party for the much anticipated release of The Magic Lantern’s third full length LP - ‘To The Islands’.
The Magic Lantern is the musical moniker of Jamie Doe, an artist dedicated to remedying the anxiety and fear present in everyone. Written following a tumultuous journey to his childhood home in Australia after nearly 10 years away, ‘To The Islands’ explores memory and hope in a world of near constant uncertainty. Musically the record mirrors this exploration, drawing on a wide range of sounds and textures, from afro-beat grooves, to solo piano, string quintet lyricism to narcotic late night saxophone jams, all united by Jamie’s instantly recognisable voice, enquiring mind and inimitable song-writing style. ‘To This Islands’ promises to be his most ambitious musical statement to date.
Support comes from the unique and beautiful sounds of Rachael Dadd. With a string of releases on Talitres (EU/UK), Broken Sound (UK), Sweetdreams Press and Angel’s Egg (Japan) and much support from DJs on Radio 1, Radio 2, Xfm, 6 Music, France Musique among many other stations worldwide, experimental folk multi-instrumentalist Rachael Dadd has just released her strongest and most impacting body of work into the public sphere. Two years in the making ‘We Resonate’ out on Talitres (UK/EU) and Sweetdreams Press (Japan), is an uplifting celebration of life and by far her most collaborative.
