MP3 Magic Goat - Stuck In Traffic
If No Doubt rocked harder and never sold out.
13 MP3 Songs
ROCK: Ska, ROCK: Hard Rock
Magic Goat will never be on MTV. They will not have a platinum album, or ever be big in Australia. They will never grace the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, and never find their name on the UK’s top 40 charts.
Then again Magic Goat never set out to do any of that.
The seven members of Magic Goat came together 2 years ago with a collective love of ska music, and an unwillingness to let others have all the fun of playing it.
Though not afraid of experimentation, Magic Goat’s music tends to revolve around what they think good ska should be; lively, fun music with an upbeat tempo and enough rock n’ roll to keep you on your toes. Listeners will say they are reminiscent of Save Ferris, but they also take their influences from bands ranging from Metallica to the Aquabats, to the Rolling Stones.
Combine that with their high-energy live show and stunning lead singer Anna Knudsen (who’s got a killer set of pipes to boot) and you have the recipe for why Magic Goat has been such a great local success in their hometown of Syracuse, NY. There they’ve gained a strong following in the ska scene and shared the stage with such national acts as Westbound Train, I Voted For Kodos, Mike Park, and The Toasters.
Despite the fact that most of its members are carrying full course loads at various colleges, Magic Goat is enjoying excellent growth and is poised for more. In August 2006 they released their first full-length album, entitled “Stuck In Traffic”, and most recently they have been expanding their borders and playing over a larger regional area, where new fans have met them with enthusiasm.
So, while Cingular may never offer a Magic Goat song as a ringtone, and Pepsi and Coke won’t be battling it out to cut MG a promo deal. The band isn’t worried, and wont be hanging up their saxophones any time soon. They’re happy just making the music they love and sharing it with the world.
