The Magic finds the avant-garde noise pop group Deerhoof at their most accessible, but that doesn’t mean they’ve laid off the weirdness. Musically they’ve streamlined their more chaotic elements while still maintaining a fringe element that long time fans love. This album is a perfect starting point for fans who have found their previous work to be too out there and is still a decent release for long time fans.
