Purson — Desire’s Magic Theatre (April 29, 2016)

    Purson — Desire’s Magic Theatre (April 29, 2016)  Purson — Desire’s Magic Theatre (April 29, 2016)•→   Purson are a dark and psychedelic throwback to the early days of prog rock and metal.
•→   “Purson are one of the most exciting bands on the modern rock scene because of their ability to find balance. They represent a way forward in a genre that many critics have dubbed as dead. Why? Because they write their own rules and don’t feel the pressures their stoner rock peers are beholden to. Little matter if these rules happen to reflect their musical heritage or not, Purson are simply that badass. If you can find the chance to dive into the sheer poetry of sound that they have cultivated here then you are only going to fall ever more in love with a band, and a genre that is destined to save the world.” — MATT BACONFormed: 2013 in London, England

•→   The much anticipated sophomore studio long–player from the colorful English psych–rock/proto–metal outfit led by ex–Ipso Facto frontwoman Rosalie Cunningham, Desire’s Magic Theatre doubles down on the retro–pageantry of Purson’s 2013 debut. A heady amalgam of Deep Purple, T. Rex, Ten Years After, Dresden Dolls, and Dreamboat Annie–era Heart, the 13–track set commences with the meaty title cut, a proggy six–minute blast of skunky smoke drifting from the just–cracked window of a custom boogie van. That Sgt. Pepper–induced haze extends through to the more streamlined and economical, but no less muscular, “Electric Landlady” and its swampy, voodoo–blasted counterpart, “Dead Dodo Down.” Cunningham is an alluring figure with a commanding vocal style that’s both soulful and sordid, a clarion call to both the high court and the gutter. While Desire’s Magic Theatre is hers alone to command, Cunningham’s co–conspirators prove themselves to be worthy of her dark gifts, as they cast an aural net of kaleidoscopic doom/wonder that manages to touch on nearly every facet of the psych–rock playbook. The windswept “The Sky Parade” skillfully weaves the overwrought melancholy of Comus–era English folk with the explosive space rock of Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream,” while the frivolous “The Window Cleaner” ditches the gloom and doom and goes full–on knicker–knocking Swinging London. Even at its most far–reaching and absurd, Desire’s Magic Theatre is marvelous fun, and it’s a testament to the talents of all involved that it never dissolves into self–parody.
