Wizards of Time - 'Benjamin'
PRLog - Oct. 25, 2012 - PERTH, Australia -- Hidden Shoal Recordings is proud to announce the release of ‘Benjamin’, the second single from Arizona’s epic prog-pop band Wizards of Time (http://music.hiddenshoal.com/artists/wizards-of-time/)’s debut album Will The Soft Curse Plague On?. The track is available now for free download (http://agora.hiddenshoal.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=55) through Hidden Shoal.

“jarring and ambitious and also kind of brilliant – epic, spine-tingling, innovative music” - Beat magazine

While first single ‘Little’s Jingle’ announced Wizards’ more bombastic, riff-driven side, ‘Benjamin’ is achingly reflective. Andrew Levi Hiller intones the devastating transformation of a child into a monster. In the words of Hiller, the song explores “the tumble from sheltered religious teachings into the lightlessness of scorn”. Yet, somehow, the song evolves into something life-affirming and triumphant. How do they do it? Magic. The song glows with a kind of preternatural melancholy and plays with a similar removed narrative intimacy as Sufjan Stevens’ classic ‘John Wayne Gacy Jnr’.

Wizards of Time deftly unleash technicolour art-rock like lightning bolts from their nimble fingers. Progressive without being prog and pop without being pap, the Wizards’ debut release Will The Soft Curse Plague On? is a staggering and unique concept album that weaves a universe-enveloping tapestry of dizzying complexity and emotional depth. They are the music makers, the makers of music, the slingers of sound. They are the Wizards of Time…

‘Benjamin’ is out now for free download from the Hidden Shoal Store (http://store.hiddenshoal.com) and is also available for streaming on SoundCloud (http://soundcloud.com/hidden_shoal/wizards-of-time-benjamin). Wizards of Time’s debut album Will The Soft Curse Plague On? (http://agora.hiddenshoal.com/index.php?main_page=product_...) is available in CD and digital formats.
