Just an old time sucker for a jangling chord and while the vocals on this one might not match it for swoonsomeness they do little to endanger the warm fuzzy feeling created by the gently tugged vibrating guitar appendage. Magic Bullets have been around for a bit, 2004 to be precise, but it looks like their days are numbered. Not going without a parting shot (geddit) though, in the shape of a 7-track EP called ‘Much Ado About’. That’s where you’ll find ‘What Took You So Long?’, a song so drenched in retrobilliness it could well be a glorious outtake from a mythical Feelies/Clean collaboration. KD
