ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Follow the blue light special down the rabbit hole... Magic Dollar Shoppe evokes a world of childhood trauma and adult excesses--mixing table tennis, benzoes, airport terminals and retro porn in a distorting mirror of the last 40 years. The riots of 1968, Plastic Bertrand and X-Ray Spex, Meg Ryan movies and sleep number beds are all displayed behind the same freezer glass. Magic Dollar Shoppe is at once a vision of a picked-over world of salacious objects and a personal journey from alienation to perverse satisfaction. Demonstrating a musical vocabulary that suggests Bowie, Tuxedooon, The Velvet Underground, with lyrics that seem to hearken back to the irreverence of The Buzzcocks, Blondie and albums like Kaleidoscope, The Size Queens continue to unsettle, confound and uplift.The Size Queens was formed in 2006 after Klein and Mullen decided to ditch practicing and do what they enjoy most: improvising and recording songs with friends.
