Shtick! EP // Mighty Magic Animal

Mighty Magic Animal are from Salisbury. Home to a Cathedral and famously stacked stones. I lived there for a while. This EP is not from that place, this EP is at home in the 1990s in Seattle.

Enjoy this indie punk loudness. Also check them out when they are... Continue Reading →
