about

"We met in San Francisco after four months apart… not writing. In days to follow we found inspiration, and found a studio. We recorded for about an hour… thinking we might get a new song from the jam. We left with what would become Sun Worshipper." – Mark Dolmont

On their debut album, Leslie Low and Mark Dolmont line up in battle formation, summoning the powers of ancient spirits and riding on psychedelics to navigate the chaos of this brave new world.

Mixed from a stew of magic and distortion, chunky guitar riffs awake from primordial sludge and hefty drums tap to the beat of a primeval pulse as the modern world asserts its presence, leaking from found sounds leaping betwixt channels.

Evocative of natural cycles, embedded rituals and eternal battles, this is timeless music of a vital spiritualism.

Reviews:

“What can you say about this release by Magus […] that isn’t in the positive superlative?” – Christopher Toh, TODAY, 20 Dec 2011, T7

“[…] the guitar-and-drums duo dish out a delightfully visceral blend of instrumental metal/rock/trance that achieves what it sets out to do: Hypnotise” – Victoria Barker, mypaper, 30 Dec 2011, A15

“… a dark and spiritual brew of kraut-inspired psychedelia which makes for an addictively harrowing pilgrimage through the deepest of valleys” – Dan, i’m waking up to, 15 Nov 2011

“Cultishly good.” – Christopher Ujine Ong, JUICE, March 2012, p. 30
