Liquid Sound Company – Acid Music for Acid People CD. Compact disc version of the third album from Texas acid heads led by guitarist and doom guru John Perez (Solitude Aeturnus). Acid Music for Acid People is a culmination of newer studio recordings coupled with very rare live and demo recordings. Totally disregarding any trends in psychedelic or other forms of music, the band stretches out and produces a soothing and at times intense, mind altering stew fit for cosmic travels and massive mind meandering. Approaching these recordings with a direct line to higher key realms, Acid Music finds our favorite long-running unknown Texas band keeping it simple with little or no overdubs, wrenching out a pure and raw connection to the psychedelic properties of the music. Sit back, fire up the lava lamps, pop those tabs and get ready to transport!
The vinyl version is being released by Nasoni Records of Germany. Watch for compact disc reissues of their earlier albums later in the year.

It’s almost like one long heavy guitar jam session where Janey just cuts loose at will. Janey’s mean and nasty tone and signature axe-slingin style are totally electrifying here. [Read more…]
