Last night we had the pleasure of spending 45 minutes in the company of The Magic Numbers as part of their tour with Feist and Bright Eyes at the wonderful Loews Theatre in Jersey City. Although I loved the band's album when it was released earlier this year, live they were absolutely wonderful. Stunning harmonies, supercharged songs, and four people looking like they were having the time of their lives playing them to an audience that even extracting themselves from their plush seats to give them a standing ovation when they left the stage. Even Conor Oberst was getting down side stage while they were playing, so if he's a fan surely you know you're missing out.
The songs today are from their recent KCRW radio session, two songs from their album, and a great Beyonce cover.
