Sessue – “Magic For Monkeys”


Sessue is a producer/artist from the Bay Area, impressing with the melodic “Magic For Monkeys.” The beginnings tout a nonchalant, jangle-rock yearning in the Mac DeMarco vein. An ensuing chorus reflects a more twinkling, melodic vein of rock. Heady, psych-rock guitars emerge around 03:40, with the track closing out here with a heavier rock allure. “Magic For Monkeys” does great in showing variation in its three stages, from a consuming initial dream-pop allure to a twinkling rock hook, closed off by psych-rock rumblings.

The track comes via Sessue’s debut EP Bedroom Pop, streaming in full below:
