Red Hot Chili Peppers – Magpies on Fire + Victorian Machinery
In May, the Red Hot Chili Peppers promised a “storm of seven-inches coming out over the next six months,” and it just so happens they’re fairly good at predicting the weather. A “storm” turns out to mean nine records, or 18 songs in all, and the first two singles — “Strange Man” and “Long Progression” — came out on August 14. The follow-up, “Magpies on Fire” and “Victorian Machinery,” is due out next month, but the tracks have already surfaced online. Listen to mellow, slow-paced “Magpies on Fire” and crunchy, disjointed “Victorian Machine” below, and check local forecasts for the remaining seven singles soon.
