Damn all this psych talk made me pull out the shrooms last night. Tripping out, listening to records and making a dub track that actually turned out pretty well. Didn't fall asleep until 8 this morning. Damn I'm busted now.Pulled out this one in the process:
Human Beinz.And not to be a drag, but I wouldn't call less than half of the aformentioned psych.Thats funny, cuz everything I've heard from the Beinz is either R&B or frat rock! (good stuff for sure though)

I know you're joking, but I'm actually not out of touchwith jiggy hip hop nugget psych, or calling it such, as long as it's psych. I'm just not understanding how any recordreleased from 1965-infinity that features long hair on the coveror a chick in gogo boots is now considered psych.
But on here, I get confused and a little bummed out by people naming country rockand soul/beat albums as "psych" even though they have nothing psychedelicabout them beyond a trippy cover font or maybe one 23 second fuzz break onone track. Therefore, I can accept a folk album played in a fairly conventional manner but with lyrics exploring the land of mushrooms the singer trippedthrough in a waking dream as psych, or a pop album that sings about Jeanieleaving him at the drive-in last night but with a backwards guitar soloand reverberated vocals as psych, but calling some straight-ahead folk rockalbum psych just because it was released in 1967 does nothing but confuse me.
"spidey":There is plenty of tropicalia that is EXPLICITLY psychedelic, its one of the hallmarks of the sceneAs for prog, there is some grey area (esp in the late 60s when psych is transforming into prog) but I do hear folks conflating the genres hereFor those that consider Krautrock prog though- I think the best of it is sonically and inspirationally MUCH closer to psych than prog... which is why I like it
