4 stars More hallucinogenic stickily fuzzy sound travel for another world.

Can it be said that MAGDALENA SOLIS could make a bigger success of their soundscape establishment? In the previous work "Lady Of The Wild Things" they threw us an intensive answer that they opened the curtain of Dreamland, with such a dry-fruity creation. Not simply for sounds & noises but also cosmic visual arts, in mesh ... that's the exact reason I call them as art creators, not (simple) musicians. They can let us go on a mind-expanding trip for a world reunited with our mind itself, with full use of various art material - ethnic, Oriental sound views and elements, eerie shouts from inferno, helter-skelter musical notes, graceful female whispers, beautiful percussive droplets, and simultaneously unified and refined sound arts ... we can enjoy, be immersed in their "cannabic" underground legally.

A great work indeed (and also their EP sleeves are very illusory).

3 stars 'Hesperia' is tending towards trance/space this time, a tad more accessible compared to the predecessor EP, even comprising one song which takes you on an extended nine minute excursion. MAGDALENA SOLIS are a Belgian outfit providing hallucinatory-transcendental stuff in the vein of the Kosmische Musik, dark mooded, other-worldly but still pleasant in some way. The band name refers to a High Priestess of Blood acting in an obscure Mexican cult around the 1960's. And in fact you might feel like getting a transfusion on some points when listening to this band.

Just concentrate, take care of all the details, preferably use your headphones - it's worth it ... and avoid to speculate how they are able to shift into such an irresistible mood when producing this songs. I would file the aforementioned long track Sisters Of The Twilight Mansions as the highlight here. We have an absolutely delirious and nightmarish start first until they finally turn to the right direction with a fantastic oriental trance behaviour, supported by tabla, scratchy synths and a celestial female voice.

You won't find a regular drum set included here, there is nothing which rocks really, so much the more all the songs are dominated by a spaced out flow. MAGDALENA SOLIS can be counted among the rare neo krautrock acts which reference but do not rehash. Their second EP is another promising hint pointing to the first full album 'Celestial Survival Machines', which is announced for 2011.
