Magic Trix by Brooklynite Xenia Rubinos might cause an initial reaction like you are being tasered (bro). There is little to compare to the sharp, thick spine of a keyboard sound that shoots at you from the very first moments. Surprisingly, the record's aggressive sound is achieved without the use of guitars. Xenia, together with drummer/sound magician Marco Buccelli, create a dozen aggressively danceable songs. An oblique assemblage of uncommon rhythms, powerhouse vocals and dance-til-you-puke energy combine to make Magic Trix one of the most exciting debut albums in years.
Having toured the US nationally including official showcases at SXSW, Xenia continues touring steadily in support of her new album release. Xenia's music has been celebrated by fans and critics alike with features in the New Yorker, Pitchfork, NPR, MTV, Fader, and WNYC.
