Marco Benevento Shares “Do You Want Some Magic”

Marco Benevento shares “Do You Want Some Magic”, the fourth single from his upcoming album, simply titled, Benevento, due June 10 on Royal Potato Family. The hypnotic, five minute-plus krautrock homage is Benevento’s reimagination of musical heroes like Can and Neu!  It features Benevento—revered as a virtuosic, genre-defying, experimental keyboardist—playing all of the parts.

“I love those ten minute-plus songs by Can and Neu! where the entire track is basically the drum groove and the repetitious bass pattern. The recreation of this approach has practically become its own genre and I’ve always wanted to try it,” says Benevento. “The demo for was made on a plane to London back in 2016 and for a long time it was something I wanted to get back to and finish. I finally had time to re-record it at my studio during the pandemic. It felt complete when I added the Japanese translation of ‘do you want some magic?’ to the mix.”

Along with his upcoming album release, this summer Benevento presents his own festival, Follow The Arrow, at Arrowood Farms in the Hudson Valley on Saturday, June 18 featuring Antibalas, The Slip and El Michels Affair among others plus special guests like Stuart Bogie, Scott Metzger and Sam Evian among others.
