With a name like Majical Cloudz, you go in expecting horizon-leveling psychedelic hijinx, cocks on socks, general mayhem. Then you actually get a whiff of what Devon Welsh and Matthew Otto cook up in Montreal, and it's of a distinctly more intimate nature: high-impact atmospheric minimalism married to archly conversational vocals that exist somewhere between Stephen Merritt, Arab Strap, and Morrissey. There's a watercolor or wallpaper thinness to this music, for a while, until there suddenly isn'teverything congeals perfectly, and tunes like "Turns Turns Turns" seem like they've always been a part of you.
