Midwich begins 2017 with the arrival of Midwich Reda series of no-frills, minimally-packaged, club-friendly, limited edition 12”s. The first is by label founder Jim Magas. The 4-track Explanatory Denial e.p. opens with ‘Shipping Container’, a rough, minimal stomper, offering no padding or instructions. ‘New Dawn’ opens the door to a brightly-lit and concrete alternate reality. ‘Sky Castles’ keeps bodies moving while synthesized strings offer false reassurances of large financial windfall and easy sex. ‘Indelible Mark’ is cheap, sleazy lo-fi Casio lounge-funk that smells of Holiday Inn wood-paneling dripping with Benson & Hedges Ultra-lite 100s and Harvey Wallbangers. Displaying a variety of primitive techniques, Explanatory Denial is a testament to the power of diligent Craigslist synth-hunting and decades of basement refinement.

Explanatory Denial is Midwich label-founder Jim Magas’s 7th record as MAGAS. The record will be available first at shows and direct mail order. If any remain, they will be selectively allocated for March 11th release.
