Here We Go Magic - ‘A Different Ship’ + Hurricane
Ingredients: 1 ounce vodka, 1/3 ounce grenadine syrup, 1 ounce gin, 1 ounce light rum, 1/2 ounce Bacardi 151 rum, 1 ounce amaretto almond liqueur, 1 ounce triple sec, grapefruit juice, pineapple juice.
Mixing Instructions: Pour all, but the juices, in order, into a hurricane glass 3/4 filled with ice. Fill with equal parts grapefruit and pineapple juice, and serve.
Notes: Listening to Here We Go Magic’s third studio album is a lot like swimming in a deep mountain lake…peaceful, beautiful, mildly hypnotic, but always tinged with the unsettling, hollow-gut feeling of terror that comes with not being able to see the bottom — having to trust that there is a bottom at all. When Radiohead producer Nigel Goodrich offered his services to the band for this album he did so with the intent of helping better communicate their trance-inducing feeling on tape. It worked. The layers and waves of sonic magic that Luke Temple and Co. create meld together in a delightful way. It’s an album that swirls around you and one that needs a Hurricane in hand to match its timbre.
