Biography

There are two bands with the name The Magic Lantern:

1) The Swedish band live in Umeå a small town in the north of Sweden. The Magic Lantern play psychedelic music, influenced by postrock and 70’s kraut and spacerock. Most of the tracks are created live in the rehearsal room, with the tape rollin’. Then the best parts are reworked and some additions are made.

2) The Magic Lantern is also the name of an experimental folk band based in London.

The Magic Lantern is the moniker of London based musician Jamie Doe (b. 1985 Canberra, Australia) who writes songs that sound deceptively spare and starkly beautiful, but which open up to reveal a warmth, humour and wisdom that belies his age.

Jamie started writing songs and performing under the name Magic Lantern while studying philosophy in Bristol from 2003-2006. Moving to London in 2006, Magic Lantern became a quintet of musical friends coming from diverse musical backgrounds. During this time, Magic Lantern evolved a unique, transporting sound inspired by the immediacy of Jamie’s songs and a shared love of both improvised music. Magic Lantern’s debut album ‘A World In A Grain Of Sand’ was self-released in June 2011 on Hectic Eclectic Records, the label Jamie set up and received much critical acclaimed from Late Junction’s Verity Sharp, Bob Harris and Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 2, 3 and 6 respectively) among others.

    quel mic-mac putain... il y 3 magic lantern (les 2 derniers avec un The devant) : un américain (psyché, chez Not Not Fun), un suédois (psyché aussi apparemment), et un anglais. Ici on est chez le Suédois mais les titres du top track appartiennent au Magic Lantern américain.
