Magnetic Island

While Hurricane Irene blasted up the East Coast in September, Magnetic Island — formerly known as Renminbi — were holed away in Burlington, VT, and their hometown of Brooklyn working on their debut full-length album. The resulting songs sound a lot like that ferocious, but unpredictable storm: dark, brooding, and mysterious.
