1. Music Spotlight - “Non-Traditional Folk Songs” by Trail Magic
In this week’s Music Spotlight, we’re featuring “Non-Traditional Folk Songs,” a concept album from Nashville-based Trail Magic. Each song on the album is part of a single journey as the record attempts to transport the listener through a full range of emotional settings and musical plot points. A two-minute beach party leads directly into a 5-minute, epic instrumental piece featuring piano and strings. A sultry, jazz-laced tune gives way to a percussive island jam. In a style that is becoming signature, Trail Magic’s Justin Maurer and Taylor Zachry (formerly of Colorfeels) have produced another record (see Colorfeels’ Syzygy) that, in another life, could have just as easily been the soundtrack to a film. Non-Traditional Folk Songs is unique in that it was meant to be listened to as a whole, from start to finish, but each song also stands well on its own. Listen to the album now on Grooveshark.
