Day 1 of CMW. Took a trip down to the docks.

Liked what I saw from Magnet. 1 guy playing a lap steel guitar at the front of the stage, looping sounds, triggering beats, and creating etheral soundscapes. And singing.

Even Johansen (Norway) gets likened to artists like Elliott Smith and Jeff Buckley. I think he sounds more like a mix between Lindy and Richard Ashcroft.

  • This tune is called Hold On. Its a nice tune, and gets my vote for being most likely to be licensed to an episode of The OC (if it hasn’t already).

He’s in Toronto tonight at the Comfort Zone 10pm.
