Well, welcome to 2014! Big year so far, lots of change – things are going great. Magoo is currently working with locals, Canyonero, on their next EP. This band is doing great things at the moment and will be a band to watch out for this year. Check them out here. In the last few weeks, Magoo has worked with Velociraptor on their new single, Little Odessa on a couple of new songs and local up and comers Morning Harvey. Coming up he has mixing for Little Casino, Chase City from Tasmania and a little bit more work with The Ninjas! Things are looking good! Saskwatch – Born To Break Your Heart Last year, Magoo worked on the second album for Melbourne band, Saskwatch. They have just released the first single from the album, Born To Break Your Heart.
