2013 debut album from the Brooklyn native. On initial listen to Magic Trix, one might feel as though one is being tazed (bro). Little compares to the sharp, thick spine of keyboard sound that shoots out from the very first moments. An oblique assemblage of uncommon rhythms, forceful singing and dance-'til-you-puke styles combine to make Magic Trix one of the most exciting debuts in years. Surprisingly, the record's aggressive sound is achieved without the use of guitars. Rubinos, with the assistance of drummer/sound magician Marco Buccelli, creates a dozen songs that bring to mind the adventurous spirit and whacked-out mentality found in the best moments of Rip, Rig and Panic, DNA and the Contortions.
