San Francisco indie pop-rockers the Magic Bullets have suffered a bit of a setback since their first album — a certain other S.F. indie band called Girls made it big and stole away some of their members. Magic Bullets are back, however, and are starting fresh with a new lineup and second full-length, out June 15th on Mon Amie Records. A sign of this fresh start is evident in the LP’s title, giving it the ol’ self-titled sophomore effort.
The band, which has been compared to the likes of Orange Juice and The Smiths and has played shows with MGMT, The Black Keys, and No Age, will go on a summer tour surrounding the release.
You can snag a 7-inch single of “Lying Around” from the Mon Amie site; it features the b-side “Thoughts of You”.
