This is the place to discuss all things Psychedelic. I've been on a huge kick lately and the genre is slowly becoming a favorite of mine. I'm also considering Austin Psych Fest in 2013.

Who are some of your favorite psychedelic bands? Discuss.

These have been getting a lot of play from me lately:

The Black Angels are phenomenal live.

Here's a few fairly recent favorites under the vast psychedelia umbrella...


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHIeMccKiPk
Shapes Have Fangs - Like the Black Angels, they're from Austin and are veterans of the Psych Fest. Their debut, Dinner in the Dark, is pretty terrific.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gpC52hMPcE
Hopewell - I know Jason a little bit (he's got another band, Common Prayer, who are also phenomenal), and am definitely into Hopewell. He's been a part of Mercury Rev, too.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GItftOPWxAs
All Night Radio - Two dudes from Beachwood Sparks ditch the Gram Parsons vibe and head for outer space. They recorded just one album (Spirit Stereo Frequency), but it's well worth seeking out.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1L3262YiKYo
Woven Bones - Brooklyn-based, but I think connected to the Black Angels in some way or another. ETA - After a bit of further "research," it appears they may also be from Austin, and are either living in Brooklyn now or their Facebook page is totally fucking wrong.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cd3qk_y_wwA
The Make-Up - There's certainly quite a bit of psychedelia in what these Washington, DC legends did (and do - They're playing ATP in Asbury Park!)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-VODzscDr4
Wooden Shjips - Weirdness from San Francisco.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pg-licffzRg
The Bavarian Druglords - Pretty much a one-man operation. Syed is a good dude making some good music.

The Psychedelica compilations on Northern Star Records (http://www.northernstarrecords.com/) offer pretty cool intros to loads of contemporary psych bands.

I really hope this thread doesn't die. Tame Impala and the Black Angels have been the majority of the psych I have been listening. I have listened to Phosphene Dream dream a ton of times. Does anyone have a recommendation for another Black Angels album. I also discovered Black Mountain when the FYF lineup came out.

Also, psychedelic music is hard for me to pinpoint as a genre, because a ton of bands just use the washed out fuzz, non-standard instruments and complex song structure forms nowadays.

I tend to think of psych as broadly falling into two categories: either (1) song-based tracks with unusual instrumentation, fuzz, vocal harmonies or other things that suggest expansive headspace (The Beatles/Zombies/Elephant Six school) or (2) the improv/drone/free-form based groups that rely more on expansive song structures, repetition and improvisation to get to the place they're seeking (Can/Grateful Dead/The Doors school.) The more song-based stuff seems to intertwine more with indie rock, as they've become increasingly linked. I'd say at this point most people think of psych more exclusively as bands rooted in the second school.

*although 'A Day in the Life' is the best song off either and the most psychedelic element was the vocals.

Especially the Beatles one. I mean, "Lovely Rita, Rita Maid" is pretty straight forward.

Thinking about this last night when I first saw the thread title and I'm honestly not sure how to really qualify a psychedelic record. Aren't psychedelics about what you see with your eyes (or what you think you see...heh)? I've done acid/shrooms around fifteen times and it was always about the visuals, with obvious audio enhancement and sensitivity.

Do you have to be on psychedelics to make a psychedelic record? Shouldn't each track be over seven minutes (sort of joking)? Heard Black Angels a few years ago and they seemed more hard rock...like one of the heavier Primal Scream records or Butthole Surfers or something. Whatever. I'm admittedly no expert on this label.

That's what I hear. I just really, really don't care for the band. I recall not liking Phosphene Dream a few years ago, but with all the praise for the band from people whose taste in music I respect, I put on Passover today and didn't like it much at all. They just seem like very run-of-the-mill, bland psych rock. Almost every bassline sounds like the one from "In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida" and the singer's voice really doesn't work well with the style of music.

What am I missing?

Gribbz
06-30-2012, 08:44 PM
Have you listened to Phosphene Nightmare? I think it sounds significantly different from their other work. Especially "Melanie's Melody" and "The Boat Song." Christian's voice is incredible. Icing on the cake for me.

EDIT* I glossed over your distaste for his voice. That's a very hard factor to overcome. I can't get into Depeche Mode for the same reason.

That's a pretty good comp as it covers quite a wide range (up to a point, as they've continued recording and releasing music since it was assembled). I'd agree that's a good place to start, and then branch out depending upon what you like best on there. Take it From the Man! is quite good, as is Bravery, Repetition and Noise. They're probably my favorites.

Needless to say, this yielded some absolutely spectacular results.

I haven't listened to Blue Cathedral yet, and I actually listened to Avatar front to back a few weeks ago and it's fucking great. The SOOA album was good, but a bit meandering at times. And The Fiery Furnaces I really don't get, to be honest. I remember listening to Blueberry Boat probably 4 or 5 years ago and not really caring for it, and a bunch of those songs came up today and I still feel the same. Maybe other albums of theirs will click with me better, but the ones from that album just don't really do much for me at all.

But let me talk about Embryonic here for a second. I hadn't listened to that album for a few years, and had forgotten how wonderfully out there and bat shit insane it is. And especially mixed in with songs from those other albums, it stands up very very well. I loved it when it came out, and I probably listened to over half of it today, and to me it's absolutely up there with the best work the Flips have ever produced.

Skip Spence was certainly some kind of madman. And yes, Oar requires about a dozen listens to really get into whatever the fuck was going on in his head.

Ohhhhh, Skip Spence was in Moby Grape? I didn't know that. You learn something new every day.

Stumbled upon this gem on YouTube; why do the Swedes always put out such good psych?

Cold Sun - Dark Shadows

This album's really good. A bit typical late '60s psych rock, but some of the songs go to some pretty wild places. Check it out.

Haymarket Square - Magic Lantern

Another cool '60s psychedelic record. This one is much more groovy than the Cold Sun album...it sounds like it could be played in one of those dance scenes in Austin Powers, haha. Good stuff.

Man. This album could have been so great, but alas the first 4 tracks make promises that the rest of the record can't keep. Still a worthwhile listen if not for Side A alone, but it pains me to think of what could have happened to this band/album had they kept their foot on the gas. That's how good those first 4 songs are.

I really like that Haymarket Square album, Chris.


Also, I finally gave Brian Jonestown Massacre's latest record a spin and it's really good. I think it's the best album they've put out in a long time.

EDIT* This track kills:

"Ha. Ha! You call that psychedelic?" - Skip Spence, if he were alive today, listening to Temples.

I have been noticing that Spotify has filled in lots of world music holes, so today I checked, and there are now tons of releases from Erkin Koray and Baris Manco, two of Turkey's biggest psychedelic artists, up on there. 2023 by Manco is one hell of a record.

International psych/funk has been a HUGE musical wormhole for me over the last couple of years, and one that I'm fine completely with being swallowed whole by hahaha. I give a lot of credit to the "compile-ists" who travel to these locations, make local connections, and dig through mounds of dusty old vinyl to find these gems.

Anyways, I don't use Spotify but there are a series of region-based "Rare Groove Nuggets" collages on ? which have led me to some truly fantastic discoveries; I also try to keep up with what labels like Now-Again, Strut, Soul Jazz, Light in the Attic, Secret Stash, etc. are releasing as they seem to always put out some quality compilations and re-issues.

What made me want to listen to those guys was jumping into this Mauritanian psych record that just came out by a lady named Noura Mint Semyali. Her parents are serious musicians from the area (her dad wrote Mauritania's national anthem) and family is the predominant way that musicians are trained in that part of Africa, so she's a superstar. The album, Tzenni, is really good, a wicked blend of American psych, African string instruments and vocals that definitely reflect the Tuareg background of Mauritania.

I saw them last night and thought they sounded great. Their set was very short, the band mentioned something about the new drummer not knowing many songs.

Good to know. I was thinking of getting there later, but if the set is short- I won't. Thanks for the heads up.
