Magic Weapon was a Canadian indie rock group based out of Montreal, fronted by multi-instrumentalist Jordan Robson-Cramer, who also is a member of Sunset Rubdown and former member of Miracle Fortress.


Born in Winnipeg and raised in Victoria, Jordan Robson-Cramer moved to Montreal in 2004 a year after graduating from high school. He joined forces with Mathieu Malouf in 2005 to form Magic Weapon. A self-titled EP Magic Weapon was recorded and released in October 2006. While Malouf left the band later that year, Matt Shane of Think About Life joined the band on drums, and Rory Seydel of Shapes and Sizes joined on guitar in 2007. The new lineup, consisting entirely of Victoria natives who now call Montreal their home,[citation needed] recorded Residue Hymns at Breakglass Studios in Montreal with Dave Smith.[1]

Robson-Cramer is also a drummer, guitarist and keyboardist for Montreal's Sunset Rubdown and the former drummer of Miracle Fortress. He joined Sunset Rubdown in 2006, and left Miracle Fortress in early 2008 to focus attention on his solo work and duties with Sunset Rubdown.

According to, Magic Weapon have been recording their first album with Martin Horn at Digital Bird Studios since November 2009.[2]

Not long after the release of Residue Hymns, Jordan Robson-Cramer had said that Magic Weapon would be ending. Aside from being the touring drummer for Sunset Rubdown, Robson-Cramer went on to start a new project called Ancient Kids. An 8-track EP entitled 'Odd City' was released January 2011.
