Mrs. Magician have mastered the sickly-sweet, fuzz-laden jams that flow naturally out of the Bay Area. The five-piece blend easy-going surf-tinged mantras with stadium-rock guitar solos that crest on a whim. They shift song structures like tectonic plates, resulting in a rousing earthquake that comes straight from a band at the top of their element. Anything that gets John Reis’ (RFTC, Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu) Swami Records stamp of approval gets our wholehearted recommendation as well.
