Magic Girl (from the album I’m Too Blue available on Sinkhole Texas, Inc)
The Texas songwriter tradition surrounds the songs of Magic Girl like a wild wind on an open plain. Magic Girl, aka Mary-Charlotte Young, guides the tracks across I’m Too Blue, her recent release, with a firm grip on the characters. As Country laps at the rock hard edge of “Appaloosa (Mary)” Magic Girl embraces mistakes with punk rock attitude while she hops on board a train-track beat for the tale of “Widow (Judith)”, strums up a twirling rhythm to soundtrack the drugged-dreams of “Boxcar Girl”, and follows the outlaw west Texas wind into soundscape “Where Every Man is King”.
The experiences of lives lived on the borders of civilization, hard-won success and last-chance loses tell their stories on I’m Too Blue, the heart of the album glowing with the light of love as a woman waits at home for “The Hangman” to return from a day at the office and puts a percussive rumble under the exposed emotions of the title track. Magic Girl is the storyteller and the star of I’m Too Blueas the guitar spits out a rhythm for “Ramblin’ Woman” and opens “Black Valentine” on heavy breaths of a beat. Magic Girl spins out a reel for “Magdalene” and feels a heartbeat through every fiber of “Wild, Wild Hair (Delilah)” as I’m Too Bluewatches love takes sides and face off in “Say It Ain’t So”.
