Magnet Best of 2002

"Hidden Treasures"

Charles Atlas - Worsted Weight

Creeping fogs, ghost trains and ravens on fenceposts have nothing on the impending sense of cumulative dread this San Franciso trio summons with its spookyvision soundtracks. Worsted Weight plays out like the sequel to Air's creepy/beautiful score to the Virgin Suicides by using the ornate instrumental arsenal of a Mogwai or Godspeed to sneak up on the death scene without all the loud crescendos. Stalk it before it stalks you.
