Magic Kids

Now that Memphis' Magic Kids have wrapped up their tour with Ariel Pink (which includes a NYC stop at Irving Plaza and a Magic Kids-headlining show on a boat), they've announced their return to the city. Those shows, on their November tour with Bosco Delrey (the Mad Decent dude who just played a South Street Seaport block party), are on November 12th at Mercury Lounge and November 13th at Silent Barn. Tickets for Mercury Lounge are on AmEx presale at noon Wednesday, general sale Friday at noon.

Currently, Magic Kids have a run of record store in-store in the South and Midwest, with more shows out West to follow. They have a European tour in October, and the North American dates that include NYC in November.

The band's intensely poppy debut, named after their hometown Memphis, comes out August 24 via True Panther Sound. The single above is one of the album's most syrupy, with orchestra flairs and a retro exotica breakdown. All tour dates and videos (including one on their NYC boat cruise) are below...
