Long-distance relationships can be problematic. Even with the aid of high-speed, ocean-spanning technology, the all-too-human need for contact can be hard—if not impossible—to replicate. Happily, long-distance music relationships tend to fare better. Take Eric & Magill, the collaborative Wi-Fi-and-laptops project of former Milwaukeeans Ryan Weber and Eric Osterman. The two musicians (who first worked together during their days in Camden) released Eric & Magill’s debut album, All Those I Know, in 2010, despite the fact that Weber was in Armenia and Osterman was in Michigan. Now, with Weber working with the Peace Corps in Kenya and Osterman living in Brooklyn, a new collection of songs has conquered the great divide. “Tangled Up In Nets” is the first track from the Eric & Magill’s upcoming Two Travelers EP, due February 19 as a free download via Bandcamp. A full-length, Night Singers, is expected in May.
In keeping with the band’s collaborative and long-distance nature, “Tangled Up In Nets” features vocals from Milwaukee’s own Heidi Spencer. Listen to the track below, all thanks to the world-shrinking powers of the Internet.
