New album: Magon || Did You Hear The Kids?

After a stint in France, Israeli singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Magon has now settled in Costa Rica, where he recorded his sixth album  Did You Hear The Kids?, released just half a year after his successful previous LP Enter By The Narrow Gate. You’ll hear nine original songs in which the sunny outdoors echo both musically and lyrically, with an understated pace (the sound is very relaxed) and all kinds of personal references (Magon thanks his family for endless inspiration). Standout track is Johnny Was A Son Of A Bitch, with jangly melodies and seductive “ooh la la la” chorus, but the other tunes are also quite appealing – again.

Did You Hear The Kids? is out now digitally, on CD and vinyl LP through December Square. Magon handled vocals, guitars, ukulele, bass, synths, percussion and drums all by himself, but he got help on a few tracks – from Louise Bou (backing vocals) and Alan Borg (guitar) on Onie Was A Kid, and by Cary Morin (pedal steel) on Havana Bay.
