There was definitely some Pet Sounds playing in the background during formative moments in these boys' lives. Their debut full length, Strange Heaven, was produced by Hot Snakes/Night Marchers/RFTC extraordinaire, John Reis. Their lyrics invade sun drenched surf guitar like panhandling Coney Island junkies, crashing in with "I said fuck you on the note, but I sent you flowers." If you were ever wishing Best Coast had a more intelligent and evil fraternal twin, Mrs. Magician is what you have been looking for. So if you don't mind risking your roommates' enmity after hearing the same album over and over, I highly recommend picking up a copy of Strange Heaven.
