We’re pleased to premiere the “Magic Coffin Ride,” the title track from the upcoming album from Nyxy Nyx (say it aloud). It sounds nothing like Steppenwolf’s “Magic Carpet Ride.” Rather than a macho, pulsing ode to a “little girl,” it’s a slow, fuzzy introspective look at the afterlife with some four letter words. Similar to “Magic Carpet Ride,” if you close your eyes you could see how well it could be used in a film.
“Magic Coffin Ride” is the kind of song where the third or fourth guitar line four minutes into the song will get stuck in your head. You’ll pick up different things when listening in headphones vs. speakers.
Nyxy Nyx is the project of Philadelphian Brian Reichert. Magic Carpet Ride is his 10th release under this moniker. It will be available to purchase as a cassette for $7 on December 7. The first 9 are available on his Bandcamp page.
