Buddy McNeil & the Magic Mirrors

December 28, 2011

For those wanting a bit garagey flavor to their roots rock, Canadian artist Buddy McNeil and his Magic Mirrors got two albums, one EP and one digital track’s worth available on their Bandcamp. Their recent full length Introducing Once Again… takes classic Americana roots, injects it with some healthy late sixties/early seventies Rolling Stones and adds a (at times) very Hives-sounding vocals on the thirteen tracks offered.

At times a bit too clean-sounding for my tastes, the band still has a firm grip on classic American rock with some smooth ballads, nice rave-ups and a couple more country-flavored tracks thrown in for variety. Buddy himself has a nice screaming style to his vocal delivery and their fluid material is sure to have something for everyone.
