Saccharine Trust - The Magic Kids "Summer" single from Memphis

The Magic Kids
"Summer" from Memphis
True Panther

"Good To be" about sums up "Summer", in other words, it was too good to be true. Now that the first track from The Magic Kids first full length has been released it leaves me feeling like I drank a Sunkist the first time and then got handed a Tab. The Magic Kids view the song as a cautionary anthem to battle the lonliness of summer. Chances are most people might peg this song as a downer before they hear the lush outro. The opinion could easily go both ways. Bennet's vocals seem to be aiming for the Bryan Ferry-vibe which serve's this song well, but is miles way from the nasally bubblegum vocals on the first two singels..This might serve the band in the long run but for now it's almost as if they ditched their diet of Kasenatz and Katz records in favor of obscure Van Dyke Parks or boring Wondermints outtakes. Hopefully this is just a bad choice of a single and not representative of Memphis.

Ick, that's too bad!  I've never heard of the Magic Kids before.  Are their other songs any good and worth checking out?  I'm always looking for new music to check out.
