Top Ten Modern Psychedelic Music ArtistsPetSounds The groovy sounds of the '60s have experienced a resurgence in the past decade and a half, and new technology allows artists to create even more mind-blowing sounds. In my opinion, it's the best musical trend since Paisley Underground.
Below are ten bands who formed in the 21st century--proof that quality music is still being produced in quantity.
The Top Ten
Supremely dreamy psychedelia at it's best with catchy electronic sounds that uplift the spirit.
The perfect combination between harmonious melodies and strange thoughts, bass, drums, and electrical sounds
Personally I like "Elephant" - BeatlesFan1964
Definitely deserves first placeV 3 Comments
They've compiled an incredible discography, both as a band and as solo artists. Each one of their albums is experimental in a different way.
Recommended listening: "In the Flowers" - PetSounds
This list could help me expand my musical tastes. - muffinkid
All top tenners should read carefully, and sample a couple of PetSounds' excellent recommendations.
SLOW LIFE is a good song
They're like Pink Floyd with folk vibes.
Recommended listening: "Knife" - PetSounds
They seamlessly blend psych and electronica. Highly recommended for you, PositronWildhawk.
Recommended listening: "Sun Lips" - PetSounds
Tame Impala sold out, MGMT is honest and about as unpretentious as it gets
A band with 3 albums (and an ep) that are all such different listening experiences, they are truly creative and not afraid to be uncommercial when it means making art that sticks outV 4 Comments
Great American band playing some amazing heavy and trippy psych...
If you like the Velvet Underground or 13th Floor Elevators, I can guarantee you will love these guys. They've also done a pretty cool cover of The Doors' "Soul Kitchen".
Recommended listening: "Young Men Dead" - PetSounds
This guys have been around for about 5 years and they already have 8 studio albums. And whats the most impressive is that all of them are great solid psychedelic garage rock albums. Their latest album (Nonagon Infinity) is also a testament to how creative this guys can be, since the album consist of nine songs that all transition seamlessly into the other, and the last song of the album loops back to the first song, which creates this album that you could technically listen to infinity, hence the name.
They're really experimental and not afraid to try new things
Their eponymous debut is one of my all-time favourite albums. It's the perfect blend of garage rock and neo-psychedelia. I highly recommend listening to the whole thing. - PetSounds
Every one of their albums is a worthy listen...
Outstanding psychedelia from Brooklyn, NY
For those who like to add a little psych to their surf...
I love Tame Impala but these guys need more love too - LizardKing99
They're like surf-garage-psych rock. Kudos to LizardKing99 for introducing me to them.
Recommended listening: "Digsaw" - PetSounds
They're not strictly psychedelic. In fact, they're more folky than anything else, but I'm including them because they're simply delightful.
Recommended listening: "Mykonos" - PetSounds
Best modern psych band around today, very Pink Floyd
Released mega rare vinyl LP called 'Bloodguilt' that was a Psych masterpiece, it was then banned due to sleeve images - well worth a listen Sabbath Meets Hawkwind
Check out their latest (4th Album) "Blown Into Another Man's Sky" on Garden Records GCD 10, very underrated UK Psych band!
Such great music
They cranked out brilliant psychedelic albums at a pace and quality that mimicks one of their huge influences: The Beatles.
