Sunday Stills: Magic Wands

I am not into music, so I cheated and looked up wikipeadia, and did what I normally do in school, made my own magic wands which my kids love.  Harry Potter, came take your pick.

The band was formed in 2008 after Chris found a copy of Dexy's song, Teenage Love, on her myspace and the two got in touch.[2] Dexy moved from Los Angeles, CA to Nashville, TN and the two began to write music together. The name of the band stems from the gift of a magic wand from Chris to Dexy while the two were living on opposite sides of the country.[3]

In late 2008 the band signed to indie label Bright Antenna and released their first EP, Magic Love & Dreams recorded in New York City with producer John Hill (Santigold/Lykke Li) in 2009. In a review in Prefix Magazine the album was scored 7/10 and reviewer Matthew Richardson wrote that, "the whole EP is covered with the cosmic haze of dream-pop, while the Valentines maintain the attitude of punk kids."[4]

On February 17th 2010, the MP3 blog, RCRD LBL, released a download of the track, Warrior remixed by The xx.[5]

The Wands' debut LP Aloha Moon was released on April, 24th 2012.

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Music Groups or Songs in Pics

This will be a fun and challenging challenge to say the least and will not only take photo  skills but a knowledge of music. So find a song or music group and then take a picture of someting that represents them, sounds easy but it may take a bit of creativity.
