Under-Appreciated Band: The Magic Numbers

There are good hippie rock groups and bad hippie rock groups, the numbers fall into category one. They are free spirited, and produce jangly rock tunes tinged with a bit of melancholy and sadness. However, they don't throw their "free spirited nature" in your face, meaning they don't constantly remind you of how hip and new age-y they are. They are also a band that I think can be enjoyed by multiple age groups, they aren't restricted by musical barriers or genre labels; their goal is just to produce enjoyable albums. I also like the fact that the numbers defy stereotypes, not only is there an equal male to female ratio, but the band members also look like realistic human beings; they aren't unbelievably attractive, they are all a tad over-weight and are the antithesis of what the modern music industry considers "marketable."
