In the year of its 20th anniversary, Piano Magic’s second album, the seminal ‘Low Birth Weight,’ is re-issued on vinyl on the record’s original label, Rocketgirl. Beautifully redesigned, with new sleeve notes by Glen Johnson of the band and previously unseen pictures from Simo Bogdanovic’s original photo session, ‘Low Birth Weight,’ is limited to 500 copies.
Greatly inspired by the experimental rock band, Disco Inferno and late 80’s/early 90’s “dreampop,” the album was recorded between Nottingham and London by a revolving cast of characters that included Pete Astor (The Loft/The Weather Prophets), Simon Rivers (The Bitter Springs) and minimalist electronic duo, Isan. Lyrical, emotional, playful, ‘Low Birth Weight,’ serves as a fascinating bridge between late 90’s dream pop and experimental electronic music.
