Mad Mackerel Recommends...Magic Trick. Magic Trick is a band, but it wasn’t always that way. In the beginning it was just Tim Cohen alone in his San Francisco bedroom studio, swatting songs out of the ether during the spare hours between tours with his other project, weirdo-pop juggernauts, The Fresh & Onlys. When the tapes filled up, he’d cull a few favorite tunes to press a solo record. To list a few of these: The Two Sides of Tim Cohen, Laugh Tracks, and Magic Trick.

To cut the proverbial long story short: Tim Cohen’s Magic Trick ultimately morphed into the band Magic Trick.

And so it was that they released their new record yesterday titled Ruler Of The Night. Along with his Magic Trick bandmates Noelle Cahill, James Kim, and the Aislers Set’s Alicia Vanden Heuvel, Cohen has crafted eight tracks of poignant, offbeat folk-pop, with an eclectic menagerie of instrumentation and a bevy of indelible, singalong marvels like Same People, Weird Memory, and Invisible at Midnight.
