Stream It From The Mountain: Magic Bullets – Young Man’s Fancy

Magic Bullets were a San Francisco-based indie-pop band active from 2004 to 2011.  During that span, they released two EPs and two full-lengths including their acclaimed 2010 self-titled sophomore album which featured their 80’s-inspired brand of jangle-pop that bristled with the post-punk energy and swooning, melancholic melodies of The Cure and The Smiths.  After the band dissolved, three of the members including, vocalist Philip Benson and guitarist Corey Cunningham formed the scuzz-punk trio Terry Malts and curate the label, Parked In Hell Records. 
Young Man’s Fancy is an album that was recorded between 2007-2009 prior to their second album which was released on Mon Amie Records. Out now on limited edition cassette via Parked In Hell Records, the 13-song collection features 11 previously unheard songs including the jangly, horn-infused standout track “I Could Go” and 2 alternate versions of songs that appeared on their second album, including the single, “On Top Of The World”.  Rounding out the set of songs is their cover of “Nerve Pylon”, the 1980 classic by post-punk pioneers The Lines.  

Additionally, Parked In Hell has re-released an expanded vinyl version of Magic Bullets’ 2009 EP, Lives for Romance here:
