Play that music

Magic Wands

Every now and then, I wonder, hope, pray that with early 90’s vintage fashion seeping into the collective conscious,  early 90’s music will come along with it. I’m not talking about pop music as much as indie bands of that era. Not without their hipster tendencies, wayfarer clad Magic Wands, Chris & Dexy Valentine based out of Nashville, Tennessee have a few love infested songs out. My favorite is Teenage Love, its sweet and irreverent, and why shouldn’t  love be that way?

In 2007 while living in Nashville, Chris found a song on Myspace that he listened to repeatedly, day and night. Soon he discovered it was a song by Dexy, called ‘Teenage Love’. During the course of the summer 2007 Chris and Dexy started talking on the phone until dawn, writing songs for each other and mailing gifts such as toy lions, old records, handwritten poems and one glowing heart lamp. Though 2000 miles apart, they decided they were destined to be. Two weeks later Chris was back in L.A. helping Dexy pack up her old Mercedes Benz for a trip across the country. ~Ark Recordings
