Magic Bullets

Writer’s block. That’s it. That’s the only explanation of how I can continue to tap my foot and nod my head on the sixth consecutive listen of “Heatstroke” from Magic Bullets and still not come up with something to write about it. Yes, it’s lame to just write “I like it” about a band/song, but with the pulsing keyboards and snappy drums of “Heatstroke,” that’s all your gonna get outta me. I like it. a CHILD but in life yet a DOCTOR in love is the debut album of this San Francisco band just out on Words on Music. If you must have comparisons, try these from Words on Music: C86, Felt, Gang of Four, New Order, Feelies, Talking Heads, Stranglers, Orange Juice, and the French Kicks. And make that eight consecutive listens!

  1. Also check out their other band, The Cosmos (different singer). The Magic Bullets' guitarist (Corey) prefaced his giving me the Cosmos' CD with, "It sucks". It doesn't, though perhaps not so toe-tappingly delightful as 'a CHILD but in life yet a DOCTOR in love'.
