Mrs. Magician might be only a couple small steps away from Spacemen 3 in sound, but in personality, they hail from an entirely different sounding garage. Channeling dissatisfaction with everything from God to nightlife to the '80s, singer Jacob Turnbloom and guitarist Tommy Garcia are able to make the blues come out sounding about as sweet as you've ever heard it, like something went wrong on their way to being pissed off, and before they knew it, their catchy hooks got the better of them. Perhaps some of the band's strange fascination with the supernatural will be satisfied when their sophomore record 'Strange Heaven' drops April 17th on Turnbloom's own label, Thrill Me! Records. The album includes crowd favorites, like the unexpectedly catchy 'There is no God,' and the jangly drug anthem of the year: 'I'm Gonna Hangout With The Lesbians Next Door & Drop Acid.' This is an album that delivers its medicine with plenty of sugar the whole way through. Preview their new record here and see them at The Troubadour on March 29. - Mike Levine
