Magic Wands are a burgeoning young duo playing some really fun music these days, and the most recent remix of Warrior sounds especially sweet to my ears this week. Uh, maybe because I just saw them live the other night, and they exceeded the expectations of an opening act. We love it when that happens. Don’t we?

Chris and Dexy have their roots in Nashville, Tennessee but seem keen to take their sound as far as it’ll take them. Granted they have a bit of that ’80s flare going on — dare we call it a trend — it’s not too surprising to see that they have some real British appeal as of this last tour in the U.K. The upside to this is that the sound is totally susceptible to some pretty great remixing. Like stuff that really makes you want to get up and get down.
