Magiscope Records is a working collective with various musical ties that go back close to 30 years. Our San Jose, California studio is home base where we meet to play, record, mix, and hang out.

Three bands are born of this collective:
Novemberistas!, Magic Squares, and Lazy Susan Directive.

Our new album Hecho en California features music by Novemberistas! and Magic Squares.

I NY is an ever-growing compilation of Neil Young songs interpreted by the collective.

If you’re here as a listener, you can stream or download all our music for free, forever.

If you’re here as a musician, we invite you to record with us and/or feature your own music right here on the Magiscope Records Guest Bands page. Over time, we hope that many musicians will find a good home here.

We also offer consultation for performance anxiety, band discord, writing blocks, self-criticism, recording issues, or whatever is impeding your creativity and productivity.

Thank you for visiting. Play at rock-approved levels!
