Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, Magic Shoppe released “Wonderland” in October 2016. This release is a departure from their last release, Interstellar Car Crash, in that they’ve mostly abandoned the flowery side of psych for a darker, fuzzier corner of psych. The track “Head On the Floor” unleashes a shit load of reverb that never lets up. “Stars Explode” gives a nod to Raw Power era Iggy Pop (in the guitars at least). “Kill” ushers in a bit of Sonic Youth along with seriously trippy vocals, while “Hearing Voices” is only slightly less lethal and drugged out than its predecessor. By now, hookah pipes and bongs are in rotation as listeners are lost in the psyched out dreams induced by “Wonderland”. “Blowup” meshes BJM guitar with late 60s sonics, and backs away slightly from the noise fest on the previous tracks.

Magic Shoppe collectively create a swirling cacophony of modern day psychedelia intriguingly peppered with sonic atmospherics, fuzz, reverb drenched boy-girl harmonies and droning instrumentation.
