Title: High Beams
Format: LP
Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"After far, far too long lost in the merch-less dark, the LBCs most married band, Magic Lantern, finally beam down the blinding full-length psych-statement we always knew they had hidden inside. It only took the Southern California sector a single 5-song demo plus a handful of incense-dense komische live flights to fully fall under the spell of MLs oncoming headlights, but now the rest of the globe can hop on the bands wild wagon. Hold on. High Beams throws out the total 20-sided die of the their illuminative powers, from stomping, storming show staples like Deathshead Hawkmoth and Vampires In Heat through to Sun Araw-vibed chime trancers (Feasting On Energy) and even a good time acid-addled feedback boogie (Cactus Raga). These are all of the Lanterns classic long-form anthems, captured in glorious high-def thanks to Bobb Brunos attuned production/recording capabilities and a radiant mastering job courtesy of James Plotkin. The riffs rip, the drums destroy, and the organ burns a hole in the sun. Walk into the light. Black vinyl LPs (with full color center labels) in glossy jackets with flag photography by Cameron & Erica Stallones, plus a fried-eyed, full-color 11x17 poster. Edition of 500." -Not Not Fun

Title: Platoon
Format: CD
Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Its been a while since The Lantern shined its High Beams out into the world but lifes a maze of alternate paths (marriage, children, Portland Oregon, etc) and thats just the way it goes/went. Fortunately for all lovers of heavy male psych brotherhoods, the ML gang convened back in 2009 before parting ways temporarily to track their second full-length, Platoon, and here it is. As oughta be expected, its a monstrous hot-rod cruise into screaming dual wah distortions powered by the poker faced Gavin/Chip rhythm section and splattered with jazzy freak-out organ and the occasional Stallones echo yelp. Featuring most of their live classics from the pre-hiatus era (Dark Cicadas, Friendship, etc) and tracked/mixed by Best Coaster Bobb Bruno, this fills the hole in yr heart left by High Beams." - Not Not Fun.

Title: Magic Lantern
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Magic Lantern came into being at the mid-point of the decade, sparked into existence by a simultaneous period of musical discovery for Philip French, William Giacchi, and Cameron Stallones. Inspired by the psychedelic approach to musical tone and structure in various eras and genres of rock (not at all excluding Germany and Japan in the 70s), the three realized they ought to make use of the new creative tools theyd stumbled upon, and began jamming the summer away in twin poles of Long Beach and Whittier, CA. Over the course of a year, they recorded every jam and compiled a full-lengths worth of home-studio demos which later became their self-released CD-R. At the same time, each member was developing solo and side projects to channel parallel universes of sound. A year after their first jam together, Magic Lantern decided to make the leap to playing live and recruited good friends and like-minded musicians Chip Knechtel and Gavin Fort to be their marathon rhythm section. The jams from their CD-R were used as the blueprints for the band to develop a raw, stripped-down sound that emphasized hypnotic rhythms and improvised guitar duels. After being invited to play at the Tee Pee Records showcase Manifest Destiny in August of 07, th Lantern kept up a steady diet of shows in L.A. and Long Beach for the next year, earning a local following and two highly limited tapes on Not Not Fun Records. Through the spring of 08, they began writing new material as a band and developing the new songs live. In the summer, they recorded these jams with sound wizard Bobb Bruno, which led to the Not Not Fun LP High Beams that September. At this point, the band had fully emerged from transition into a shared creative vision of five musicians, each possessing a singular voice, all united in the common goal to engage both mind and body through good vibrations." -Woodsist.
