Sheer Mag

A tear in the firmament.

Beyond the noxious haze of our national nightmare - as structures of social justice and global progress topple in our midst - there lies a faint but undeniable glow in the distance.

What is it?

Like so many before us we are drawn to the beacon. But only by the bootstraps of our indignation do we go so boldly into the dark to find it.

And so Sheer Mag has let the sparks fly since their outset, with an axe to grind against all that clouds the way. A caustic war cry, seething in solidarity with all those that suffer the brunt of ignorance and injustice in an imbalanced system.

Both brazen and discrete, loud yet precise, familiar but never quite like this - SHEER MAG crept up from Philadelphia cloaked in bold insignia to channel our social and political moment with grit and groove. Cautious but full of purpose.

What is it?

By making a music both painfully urgent and spiritually timeworn, SHEER MAG speak to a modern pain: to a people that too feel their flame on the verge of being extinguished, yet choose to burn a bit brighter in spite of that threat.

With their debut LP, the cloak has been lifted. It is time to reclaim something that has been taken from us. Here the band rolls up their sleeves, takes to the streets, and demands recompense for a tradition of inequity that’s poisoned our world. However, it is in our ability to love - our primal human right to give and receive love - that the damage of such toxicity is newly explored.

Love is a choice we make. We ought not obscure, neglect, or deny that choice. Through the tumult and the pain, the camaraderie and the cause, the band continues to burn a path into that great beyond.

But where are we headed?

On NEED TO FEEL YOUR LOVE, they make their first full-length declaration of light seen just beyond our darkness. Spoken plainly, without shame:

It is love.

This - is SHEER MAG.

Just like April Wine’s third album predicted, people of the future will be living on Saturn and making and listening to music that sounds just like the coolest shit to ever come out of the 1970s. Just kidding, the April Wine stuff never happened. But the second part is kinda true. Rocanrol artists, hellbent on lending credibility to their art-damaged product, are hewing to all sorts of historical sources. Of the au currant bands that embrace this strategy, Sheer Mag is probably the best. The Philly quintet certainly have their psycho-geography right and add to their relevance by wrapping their sound in the anxiety of this age. Sheer Mag will be at Sister (407 Central Ave NW) on Friday Oct. 6, to perform works from their latest effort, an amazing album called Need To Feel Your Love. Tenement and Shitty and the Terribles will be there too. Show Up for this one if you love the rock and roll music, kids. $10 • 10pm • 21+.
