Xenia Rubinos

Brooklyn's Xenia Rubinos is set to release her debut album Magic Trix via Ba Da Bing Records on April 23. Featuring ten aggressively danceable, original tracks, along with two re-workings of Latin American children's songs, Magic Trix recalls the spirit and whacked-out mentality found in the best moments of Rip, Rig and Panic, DNA and The Contortions and others, while simultaneously exploring Rubinos' Cuban, Puerto Rican and American musical roots.

[This album] stopped me in my tracks…imaginative and creative and unlike anything I expected…such a strong record
– Felix Contreras, NPR

Visceral, danceable noise-pop… energy and immediacy [that's] so strange and alien I haven't been able to get my head around it…a good problem to have.
– Peter Margasak, CHICAGO READER

Loads of playfulness and abstract rhythmic pauses.
– Julianne Escobedo Shepard, THE FADER
