special offer! "Vancouver trio, Winning's sophomore full length is as dour and uncomfortable as it is playful. It's a paradigm sprouted from the seed of improvisation, but nurtured from a dark and claustrophobic sentiment. Structurally, Could We Believe In Magic? has it's hands in a variety of extremes. It runs the gamut, from an apparent abandonment of traditional tempo and structure, to, at least comparatively, more conventional composition. Although the musical allusions might be somewhat effortless to spot (The free-improv / anti-rhythms of early US MAPLE and the haunting melodies of RADIOHEAD) it would be a mistake to call Magic a cocktail of various styles. It would be more accurate to call it a chemical reaction; a mix of substances that don't just combine, but actually react together to create something entirely new." (label info)
