Band to watch: Acid Carousel

Words by Amanda Padilha When one listens to enough 1960's garage and psychedelia compilations, it’s easy to point out Texas as the birthplace of some of the greatest acts of the decade; the Golden Dawn, Mouse and the Traps and, of course, the 13th Floor Elevators, just to name a few.

Album review: Jess and the Ancient Ones – The Horse and Other Weird Tales

  I first discovered Finnish psychedelic rock band, Jess and the Ancient Ones when I heard their psychedelic doom drenched cover of the song "Long and Lonesome Road" by Shocking Blue. The heavy riffs that they added and the faster tempo brought a contemporary feel to the song from 1968. Upon hearing their original track "Astral … Continue reading Album review: Jess and the Ancient Ones – The Horse and Other Weird Tales
