Magic Kids announce US tour dates. Building up to their release of Memphis on August 24 via Matador Records, Memphis’s own Magic Kids are touring hard.

“Dude, you won’t believe it. Some 60-year-old woman was singing a Decemberists’ song on David Letterman tonight.” That was the message left on my cell phone by a friend who knows indie rock inside and out but has little use for 60s pop or 60-year-old artists, a 23-year-old for whom the Decemberists are far more relevant than the Rolling Stones.
