MYSTERY OF REVIVAL -- Now shipping



Troun Records is pleased to announce a new cassette-only release from Magic Hero vs. Rock People, Mystery of Revival.

Donny Lang has been making vintage-sounding 'Thrift Shop Psych-Pop' since 2007 with his group of revolving minstrels, Magic Hero vs. Rock People. The Magic Hero sound relies heavily on a unique sort of lo-fi vision -- through the soundscape of late '60s-early '70s soft-psych, calling to mind long-lost would-be outsider classics.
Mystery of Revival is a compilation featuring songs culled from all of the group's albums: Oak of the Golden DreamSecret EnemiesMagic Hero vs. Rock PeopleBegin Thee AgainOdd Zen Ends, and Great Gondolas Calling, along with previously unreleased outtakes.

These recordings were made in an old-fashioned manner: tapes, tubes, transformers, and transistors. The original 1/4" 2-track and mono masters were used for this collection.
Side One: 1 I Live in a World / Treat It Like Your First / 3 Black Magic / Astro-Turf / 5 Letters in the Sun / 6 A Grand Stop in the Best Direction / 7 Only Road You're Gonna Find / He's Gone / 9 Begin Thee Again (Movements) / 10 Oklahoma Rain -- Side Two: 1 It All Depends On Everything / 2 Hole in Time / You Must Stand On Your Own / 1978 / Who Are the People in Your Neighborhood? / 6 Contraband / Pretty As Can Be / Beware the Young / 9 A Season in Time / 10 You Must Stand On Your Own (Reprise)
