Magic Wands Return With Debut Album, New Single

Despite being from Nashville (well, they spilt up time between here and Los Angeles), I had never heard of this band. Apparently, they weren’t taken too well here because they’re a dream pop band in an atmosphere that is primarily made up of rock ‘n’ roll and country. It’s even stranger seeing as how they have opened for the Raconteurs, the Black Keys, and the Kills. Anyways, they released an EP back in 2009, which had a couple of decent tunes and had plans for their debut to come out in 2010. However, they went quiet right after and no word emerged on what became of their debut. Then, a few days ago, they announced that the album finally has a release date, April 24th, and a title, “Aloha Moon.” To top it off, they’ve released their latest single “Space,” and it’s pretty damn good.

Space – Magic Wands

I dig the bass line on that one a lot. Sounds a bit different than what they have released before, but it’s cool. If you’re unfamiliar with the band, get to know them with the usual couple of videos below.  They don’t have any current dates, but they’re playing SXSW this year so a tour will probably be up eventually.
