Euphoric synths, balearic disco, space-disco, New Orderisms, charmingly clear guitar rhythms, plangent piano chords, lo-fi ambient fuzz and dreamy vocals. If you like the airy disco of Lindstrøm, the shimmering dance-pop of New Order or the outer fringes of fuzzy indie-pop then you'll adore this.

New Jersey's Dayve Hawk comes under many recent guises. Also known as Weird Tapes and Memory Cassette he has been setting about the cognoscenti with abandon, providing du jour, lo-fi fuzz and ambient electronica all the while. Combining his passions as Memory Tapes, Seek Magic proves a winning synergy.

From the Cocteau Twins-like, dreamy sway of album opener `Swimming Field' to the wistful and psychedelic, keyboard bliss of `Green Knight', to the squelch-y synths and laser FX of the Italo-disco themed `Stop Talking', it is clear that Hawk, along with The XX, is blurring all the right boundaries. Not convinced? Try CFCF as exhibit B.

Seek Magic's hindquarters take it easy, showcasing the best of Hawk's deft reverb skills on the mumbling electronic indie of `Plain Material', a trick with a legacy, permeating and perverting the ambient album closer `Run Out'.

But Seek Magic is all about `Bicycle', a case of magic found. Hawk's masterpiece is part Alan Braxe Balearic-chorus and part Passion Pit space-pop, as well as combining a haunting bass line with New Order-like nonchalance. Its pulsing tempo change, along with another found in `Stop Talking', are as euphoric as 2009 is going to get.

Memory tapes has succeeded with Seek Magic where many of there contempories fail. Firstly you've got to bring more than a casio to an 80's party ..and secondly have at least one song that captures everything that was actually good about music in that decade. The First track Swimming Field is a nod to the influential Cocteau Twins complete with chorus pedal guitar effects to boot and then straight into Bicycle which is has a New Order hooky bass line to complete what is the most addictive song ive heard for some time. Graphics is another highlight and will have you flailing on the dancefloor or lounge like a reminiscing thirty something pining for your 80's teenage youth or maybe thats just me, but its just like listening to Technique again for the first time. However the track Pink Stones although not poor is an instrumental that adds little and does seek magic. I like this album alot now bring on the 90's someone please and bring your guitars with ya!!

I love this album it creeps up on you slowly and before long it's embedded as a an old favourite.
Not an instant record but give it time.

Seek Magic is something to be traveled with. It's the kind of album, perhaps paired with a Towers of Asia or Bibio record, that won't give you everything at once but instead reveal it as you take it around with you. This is music to spend time with and worth making time for.
