If you're not currently reading our weekly columns, you're probably missing out on heatrocks (?) like this one from the Essex-bred Magistrates, who just signed to XL Recordings in the UK. Sam Richards wrote about these guys back in April in his Dollars to Pounds column, and we have been playing the hell out of "Make This Work" ever since. XL mixed and mastered that demo version and just put it up on the Magistrates official site along with the song's video. If you like split-screens and falsettos, this is going to make your day. If you live in the UK, Magistrates are going to make some other day because they're playing a bunch of shows there in July and August. Check the dates at their MySpace and check XL Recordings next month for details on the release of the "Make This Work" single.
