HEAR THIS: Mrs. Magician
San Diego’s Mrs. Magician make you think of one of those bands in a ‘60s surfer movie – and that’s exactly what they want. As you listen to their sweet pop songs, you can just envision the girls swooning as they gaze upon the crooners. That said, don’t be fooled – the lyrics on songs like “There Is No God” and “I’m Gonna Hang Out With the Lesbians Next Door and Drop Acid” will soon have you reevaluating the seemingly-innocent melodies. Another interesting aspect to their songs is that they were recorded the same way that old masters used to be done in order to achieve more musical hiss and crackle. Their first album, “Strange Heaven,” is out now digitally and you can find them on tour opening for Cults.
