That's So . . . 2004

Wherein, Hopedaddy asks, where was I?  This time out, the wayback machine takes only a short spin back up the block, pulling over to the first shiny object in the road: Magnet's 2004 release, On Your Side. Magnet, the alter ego of Norway's Evan Johansen, turned in a delicate and lushly produced record, full of strings, horns, multi-layered voices, and even Radiohead-esque electronic snippets, all packed into a perfectly dreamy pop release.  Imagine a highly-produced Jose Gonzales, and you are about there.  A "new discovery"?  Where was I?  Check it out.
