Label: Drag City
from Brooklyn New York
White Magic's original lineup was Mira Billotte on vocals and piano, drummer/bassist Miggy Littleton and guitarist/drummer Andy Macleod. Billotte played drums and sang in Quix*o*tic with her sister Christina Billotte (of Slant 6 fame); Miggie Littleton was a founding member of Blood On The Wall; and MacLeod also played in California Speedway. The current lineup includes "Sleepy" Doug Shaw. Occasionally Tim Dewitt drummer of Gang Gang Dance, then credited as "Dutch E-Germ" would play with White Magic when Miggy was not available. For a couple of years, the band played in New York. They soon appeared on a United Bamboo compilation. Drag City signed them in 2003, and in 2004, they released the band's Through The Sun Door EP to general critical praise. They toured the U.S. in 2009, opening for like-minded folk musicians including Will Oldham.
