a CHILD in Life But Yet a DOCTOR in Love (their capitalization, not mine) was released in May, and you know by now how the story goes: I missed it. However, I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one (it was their debut album).
I've had "Heatstroke" on repeat for about a month now, and somewhere between the keyboard, drums, and guitars I feel like Magic Bullets, hailing from San Francisco, have managed to put a city's pulse to music, its blood vessels in the streets and subways quivering with life. "People refuse to make do when they lose / something they though they'd never find again." I think the song is written to all of us, I'm well included.
