HEAR WHAT’S NEW: Son Little – Blue Magic

As our first taste of New Magic, “Blue Magic (Waikiki)” has the soulful, pop-informed foundation that made Aaron Livingston’s songs a favorite over the last couple of years. It’s an easygoing, stripped down vibe with bright xylophone notes and a reedy melody that floats through the spacious arrangement, anchored by a chorus of gang vocals and bluesy electric guitar. But like the highlights from his debut, Livingston keeps the space open and airy, never overcrowding despite the range of textures and sounds that make up the track.
