MP3 Andrew Vladeck - The Magnet - Ep

New York-born singer-songwriter Andrew Vladeck started hot-wiring old-time instruments and running them though effects pedals because he wanted more juice to push them out of their comfort zone - and in so doing fuses the modern with the historical.

“The Magnet EP” captures moments when life and love forcefully confront adversity and wrestle with loss - of loved ones and of time. Andrew’s lyrical approach is sharp-edged, often blackly (and hilariously) ironic, as he faces down his subjects in mirages and dreams. In “Hold Me Back,” he weighs a brick in his hand, eyeing the television set, where “missiles whistle, bullets sing,” and “men don’t cry, they bleed.” Delusion is peeled apart in the lucidly dreamt “You Can’t Kill Time. In the title track, Vladeck mixes images and memories and creates a specific yet universal song of mourning; he dreams of a visit from his friend and former band mate in The Honey Brothers, Pierre Michel. “Chinatown” holds the tension, as Andrew stares at a horizon where the sun seems to rise and set all at once. And “21st Century” is a post-folk collapse, a perfectly hypnotic closing meditation on a brother gone to war.

Recorded by Kyle Fischer (formerly of the band Rainer Maria) and mixed by Dave Schiffman (Johnny Cash, Mars Volta), The Magnet EP is a solo effort that incorporates hotwired, old-time instruments and effects pedals - a sound Andrew has been woodshedding at his home in Brooklyn. The record blends indie rock and folk, the modern with the historical, fusing the music of The Harry Smith Anthology with Andrew Bird, St. Vincent and Beck.
