Anglo For Your Ear: Klaxons’ “Magick”

Tanya Bower, fresh from a stint in Thailand, sends me this jam from the Mercury Prize-winning Klaxons, along with a note: “I know there is no shortage of Anglo for your ear, but I love this song. Shout out to Koh Phangan in the song where I just returned from and where me mates played it all the time.”

You asked. You shall receive.
