Under the moniker Animal Magic Tricks, Frances Laura Donnelly swaddles ballerina lullaby with eerie tribal beats in her new track “Smallish Hooves”.  The video itself, with its viscous inkblots, is surprisingly soothing.

Re: this song, our own Mehan Jayasuriya said it well:

“On “Quick Canal”, he lovingly builds up and tears down a cathedral of sound for Sadier to inhabit, layering a deep bass groove, tambourine hits and a wall of gently panning organs atop a steady, shuffling beat. Midway through, the song falls apart, briefly taking a detour into glitchy noise before giving way to a squall of fuzzed-out guitars. Try as Cox might to obfuscate the vocals, however, Sadier’s voice proves indefatigable.”
