LIQUID SOUND COMPANY – ACID MUSIC FOR ACID PEOPLE CD (ROCK035-2)
Third album from Texas acid psych 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! Order here!
