Magic Bullets Pushing the Right Buttons

San Francisco’s Magic Bullets get compared to the Smiths quite often.  Hell, I did it when I saw them early last year at the Comet, but the first fruits of their forthcoming second album sees them doffing their Smiths caps for the white boy soul influence of General Public, Haircut 100 and late period Orange Juice.  The A-side of the their new single is the playful and slightly funky Lying Around and features Phil Benson’s best Dave Wakeling imitation.  Last year’s Live For Romance EP was a leap forward from their debut and if this new song is any indication, album number two could see them bounding forward again.  In the meantime, Lying Around is like a button, and I can’t stop pushing it.
