Default PPP (Po's Psychedelic Playlist.)

Thought I would share with you guys some of my favourite psychedelic music and how it has shaped me as a person and how it made me take up art.

Here we go. First psychedelic music that truly absorbed me was contemporary psychedelic music all the way from Australia.

TAME IMPALA

Now I don't usually say this about music, EVER, but this album changed my life I think. It made me see things differently, like someone taking acid for the first time, I never saw things the same again after hearing this music.



These guys took me down the multicoloured path of psychedelic music I am currently down. And led to me taking up art without ever doing it in school. The singer of the band even got to see my art which was so inspired by his beautiful music.




I was really led to Tame Impala through MGMT, when I heard of them supporting them while in America.



I started listening to the Beatles properly then.

THE BEATLES-Tomorrow never knows(alternate version) - YouTube


I was even surprised to find good psychedelic music coming from Ireland with My Bloody Valentine.

And of course a number of bands from the mid to late 60's in America who were essentially the pioneers of this form of music.

Love - Red Telephone

My Bloody Valentine - Sometimes - YouTube

Country Joe and the Fish - Grace

Ultimate Spinach - Mind Flower

The Youngbloods - Darkness Darkness


THE YOUNGBLOODS - Darkness Darkness - YouTube

Buffalo Springfield - Expecting to Fly

Jefferson Airplane - White Rabbit

Court of the Crimson King - Crimson King

Another band that really caught my attention about 2 years ago were the Chameleons, with one song in particular. These guys are from England in the 80's and were incredibly underrated.

This is probably one of my favourite songs.
The Chameleons - View From a Hill

Another from England is Mark Fry, who came out with a beautiful album in 1972 and is now considered a psych folk classic.

Mark Fry - The Witch

And believe it or not, Radiohead.

Radiohead - Bloom


radiohead- bloom - YouTube


Anyway, while some of you might question some of the stuff I consider here to be psychedelic, for me, they are. The music I picked might not necessarily fit in with the strict frame of what psychedelic music is supposed to be ( at least some of it ) I picked it because of how it makes me feel and what I see [/CENTER]when I listen to it and immese myself.


This is quite a large post, will look over it and check if I have made any silly mistakes.
Please feel free to add to my list.

Love Po.

^ That`s an impressive collection of music, and some great photos too. Are the paintings below the Tame Impala clip yours ? I particularly liked the forest of white columns right at the bottom.

If you like Eight Miles High, you should try to track down the 16-minute live version on the Byrds Untitled album. Once you`ve heard that version, every time you hear the pop-single one you`ll think to yourself, "Why have they stopped playing before the good bit ?" It has, among other things, an excellent and unusual bass guitar solo.

For The Byrds, for what it matters, I would really pick The Notorious Byrd Brothers. I've strongly argued against My Bloody Valentine elsewhere on this forum, though some certainly didn't like that lol.

Hey there is lot of very good stuff on your list especially the Love, Jefferson Airplane and Country Joe and the Fish stuff. The two Country Joe and the Fish albums Electric Music For the Mind and Body and I-Feel-Like-I`m-Fixin-to-Die are imo two of the best psychedelic albums ever. The Jefferson Airplane albums of Surrealistic Pillow, After Bathing at Baxter`s, Crown of Creation and Volunteers are four gems.

The Byrds albums Fifth Dimension and Younger Than Yesterday are probably their two best.
