Top 10 Records of 2005 – Number Eight

Magic_numbers_1
The Gotham Gal hunts down new music with the same fervor that I do.

Early this fall she came up with The Magic Numbers.  What a find.  One of the reviews on Amazon calls this "the record of the year".  It’s not number one on my list, but I can see why someone would say that.

People compare their sound to Brian Wilson and there is some similarity.  This is just pure joyous pop music and the songs are fantastic.

This is their debut record.  I hope they can keep putting out music as simple and enjoyable as this in the future.
