Magic Castles
“Death Dreams”

You want romance? Well, ya ain’t gonna get it while “Poppin V” in your 20s. I don’t know what y’all are into. And I’m TOTES not into this Magic Castles track “Death Dreams,” but yo, it sounds so rom-com kitsche. Perfffs for V-Day too. It’s the soundtrack to the best dick-on-my-sleeve date: menacing through an arcade, huffing gas-rags behind batting cages, skirt-lifting piss into the mini-golf waterfall, holding children hostage in the playpen for more pizza. Spitting shining copper badges when they arrive. Sand paper shitter tissue in the holding cell. Vomiting in the top of a toilet you think is a sink. Being released to sunlight and noises the next day. Good thing the Magic Castles double album ain’t coming out until March 20 on ‘a’ Records. Am I right?
