Very Important!

Warning! Weird Zone Ahead!

Unbuckle your ear-belts and enjoy an alchemical blend of Rock, Psychedelia, Blues, Jazz and folk. Flagship is singularly unique and yet, reminiscent of favorites like Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Jethro Tull and Jane’s Addiction.

Purple Mind Licorice Music

Maybe there’s a little too much of Ken Kesey and The Merry Pranksters in the mix… or maybe the electric Kool-Aid is just right. Perhaps the taste of this special sauce of neurons and protoplasm, perfectly suits you. Maybe your ear buds were thirsty for just this type of cerebral cocktail. Maybe your bones were aching for this blend of blues, rock and psychedelic sunburst.

The sound, is as it tastes…

which one acquires or else,

does not

Music is like food… everybody’s got different tastes. Only you decide what you put in your mouth and only you know if these sounds are tasty enough to stick in your ear. Magus is highly experimental, in his magick, in his poetry, his lifestyle and yes, his music, too.

In case you’re wondering, the album sounds a bit like Frank Zappa beating up Leonard Cohen while Robert Plant watches and is entirely too drunk to do anything to stop them. Aretha Franklin just thinks it’s all funny and pulls up a chair to watch.

 

Roll the Bones

Luckily, you don’t have to roll the dice and gamble on whether or not you’ll “Dig that crazy Flagship sound scene, dude. Far out, man”.

Guilty Listening Pleasures

If you have a music streaming service, here are some places that you can add Flagship to your playlists:

iTunes

Apple Music

Amazon Music

Spotify

YouTube Music

SoundCloud

Deezer

iHeart Radio

Spirits in the Material World

Of course, not everyone wants to have a physical CD, these days. So, I offer electronic downloads of the entire album and of individual songs.

However, CDs are still useful and it’s awfully difficult to sign an .Mp3 with a Sharpie marker.

Supporting the Arts

If you purchase the digital album or individual dongs on iTunes or any other online store, I still get royalties there. So, if you bought even one song for roughly $1 you’re still supporting an independent artist

It’s the window at the top, with the play button thingie. In addition, there are tracks linked on that page thay can download for free!

Just right click on the link and hit “Save As”. Wherever you save your files on your computer or phone, that’s where the.mp3 files will be.

Do that for each track that you like and you’re extra awesome if you share the link to the site.

Slap it on your Facebook profile and other social media pages and tell your people that it’s your new favorite thing in the whole, wide world. You’re a good liar, they’ll believe you.

Make sure you take a moment to to check out the Trent Boswell YouTube Channel. There, you’ll find truly strange music videos. Because you need more weirdness in your life.

All the songs from Flagship are there, as well as lots of other stuff, like electronic music and spoken word poetry. There’s even some random, solo performances in extraordinarily low-tech. Serve with a 12 ounce glass of absinthe and a sprig of Parsley.

 

Pay It Forward

It’s all there and as a result, you get to listen, before you buy. Of course, you might just save the playlist and I’d never have a clue. I don’t even mind. I just ask people to share the links with their friends. That’s incredibly helpful.

But we both know… you still want your own, autographed copy. And you’re clearly the type of excellent individual that supports independent artists, Speaking of which, you can become a patron, at the Magus72 Patreon page. Look over the benefits tiers, choose the one that’s right for you and join the family.

The Art of Noise

This album is nine songs, only one of which is a solo, guitar and vocal track. The rest of them are thick, rich, full-band arrangements. Flagship was made in a mind-blowing, professional recording studio.

Why do I say mind-blowing? Well, for one thing, I had Tommy Brothers as my audio engineer. As owner and operator/head engineer at Audio Genesis, he helped me capture the sounds I was searching for. Tommy is also an accomplished guitarist (like, the guy can play Van Halen solos, note for note).

For another thing, Tommy knows great gear gets great sounds and he doesn’t cut corners. The mixing console (seen in the photo gallery) is the same brand and model that Pink Floyd used to record Delicate Sound of Thunder.

We used all top quality microphones, processors and cool toys like the Eventide Harmonizer. That’s the swirly-sounding gizmo that you hear at the end of this track:

Music, Meter and Magick = Mojo

To be clear, this is no garage band… top notch backing musicians, a couple of guys who Magus dubs “The Consummate Professionals”!

The song writing is excellent and the performances are fantastic but the overall sound is phenomenal! It’s an entirely different type of magick, sonic spells that entrance and weave their way into your spirit.

If you like Drake and Kendrick Lamar… then you’re gonna fuckin’ HATE this!

But if you jam out to Pink Floyd, Robin Trower, The Beatles, Jethro Tull, The Doors, your hunger is soon appeased.

As a result of your adoration of the psychedelic spirit of His Holiness, the High Priest of sonic Voodoo, Jimi Hendrix, you’re in luck.

Because you love the delectable, art rock soufflé of Jane’s Addiction, Soundgarden and AudioSlave, you’ll definitely want to saddle up to the buffet of Magus & The Plastic Infinity.

When solo, it’s just Magus. However, in joining with his band, it becomes the mad, musical moniker of Magus & The Plastic Infinity.

Armed with more arms, to beat more drumheads and pluck more bass strings, naturally, the sound becomes more Pimp-tastic.

Your Host

Blues, rock and funk bands… since the age of 18. Jazz guitar studies at UNC Wilmington… and the two come together in Magus, the musician. The bio for Magus, the magician is at; Meet Magus.

Music

Magus (a.k.a. Trent Boswell) is a sentient, extra-planar being of indeterminate origin. Shapeshifting and bizarre, it is best not to look directly at it, or to attempt a mind meld.

The most advisable course of action, if confronted with this entity is to stand idly by and listen to the strange and soothing sounds it makes.

The protocol is to applaud at the conclusion of these exhibitions and to purchase small plastic discs from it, which it refers to as CDs. It becomes hostile when offerings of standard issue currency are not promptly placed in the box marked TIPS.

Meter

The poetry is harboring over at Kevin Trent Boswell and antiverse. Beginning its journey in high school, the snake of word-smithing winds its way up the high-definition Tree of Audio Life into his brain.

It continuously creeps into the everyday existence, on all levels. A thousand strange structures, known as poems later, the Serpent of Verse and Song still possesses the heart and mind of the man.

Solve et Coagula

The unifying themes here are those sacred arts of Orpheus: music, poetry; walking the liminal boundaries between the worlds.

Whether you feel the groove of the thing or you step out for something else, say a quick thank you that there’s still something in the jukebox queue that is different.

Flagship, completely free of overpaid producers and formulaic “musical” trends. It’s decidedly out-of-the-box. No board of record company executives pawed over this production. No marketing moguls, insisting that it sound almost exactly like the last seventeen Top 40, Billboard hits.

Last Act of Defiance

This music rails against the untimely death of genuine experimentation. Get your own piece of Plastic Bliss, before the music police come and cart it out to the bonfire.

Of course, the Flagship album is also available at Amazon. But intrepid listeners get their soul food in the Conjure Work kitchen. That’s because they know that it puts more food on the bard’s plate.

Plus, you could get your Plastic, licorice disc signed, if you prefer to travel first class on the Mothership.
