Memphis, TN band Magic Kids have signed to (warning: website may induce seizures) True Panther Sounds, the newest addition to the Matador Records family. The ensemble’s debut single “Hey Boy” for Goner Records showcased a hazy, ornate, pop-oriented sound, channeling both Brian Wilson and Phil Spector.
Read all about it over on Matador’s Matablog.
If that isn’t enough, you can check out Magic Kids on tour with new labelmates Girls and The Smith Westerns. They’ll be at SXSW, too.
