I really like jazz influenced Psych Rock Music. Rock with horns and shit. Maybe a female moaning.Do you know anything else on the similar vibe?I categorize these into the same pile of shit. Barely any talk about music. Anybody?
Music? What's that?
cold blood has its moments on sisyphus LP. thats all easy to cop too.
It's sitting at one of those shops with no listening station and they don't allow portables.
You didn't like Mr. Joy? That's that shit. I thought it was funny, Air's got a track called "Mr. Man", Affinity gots a track called "Mr. Joy".
I thought the whole LP was a killer listen.
I just at this naasty ass gyro from this gas station.
I'm touching cloth & growing a tale in tandem.
the fifty foot hose album is great...it's really well recorded and stands the test of time pretty well, imo. what i personally like about it (which would put some people off, perhaps) is the completely unecessary use of electronics...the synth stuff on the entire album sounds like they didn't really know what they were doing...it very self-indulgent, but it adds a certain "weird" quality to it. the repeating riff in the first track is so great though.
how about these guys?
I love the Chris Harwood - Nice To Meet Miss Christine LP. I got the reissue. It's "beyond dope". One of the best records ever. Make sure to check it out if you're looking for Psych/Jazz/Folk records!
is it fuzz guitar or something actually psychadelic about the mix, the era, etc.
I see lots of things w/ the psych namebrand, but little else to fill it out. Why can't something that has fuzz guitar be garage or surf or even just funk.
not saying any of the above mentioned albums have psych moves or don't. just wondering.
ehh. I have it. Kinda unremarkable upon semi-focused needle drop.
jazz influenced psych.
sounds like another demon fuzz beef thread if you ask me.
nah. I don't know anything about genres. my mind is a burning cloud.

What is the difference between Garage & Psych?
Psych = drug addicts playing music for drug addicts (recorded in a studio)
Garage = drug addicts recorded while praticing in their garage
It's not about the instrument, it's the music. I've heard "jazzy psych" that hardly has any fuzz at all (the Free Spirits) and I've heard country records with fuzz guitar that aren't psych by any definition.
The difference between "Louie Louie" and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts' Club Band."
And there are some bands/songs that are garage and psych simultaneously (Thirteenth Floor Elevators, Electric Prunes).
I wouldn't necessarily call the Prunes a garage band, would you?
i don't have the answers but it's obviously a lot more complicated than this.
there are things which cross genres of course. The same as say- what is northern soul- or i hate to bring it up again: what is modern soul, or boogie for that matter.
there are definitely garage groups which crossover into psych and psych groups which crossover into garage, etc. but there are a lot of distinctions in the sound, i think.
first of all, the majority of rare garage was released as 45's. And yes, recorded in garages. i would think a heavier, rock sound.
less psych released as 45s, mostly albums. maybe more concept oriented, dreamier in places.
wasn't getting at a particular instrument, but it's pretty much the fuzz guitar that grabs collectors from each circle.
just bringing this up because i've seen numerous threads about psych records with lots of titles mentioned that I never would have classified as psych nor would most psych collectors. there's plenty of other places to learn about this stuff.
what about the california raisins? definitely a garage band. but then again, to become raisins you would need to be in the sun, so maybe psych.
All SOUL, bro. All SOUL.
Just did. Their big hit, "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night," is definitely in the garage vein.
Now as far as the stuff they did later with David Axelrod (and after), that's another story!
And just so it doesn't look like I'm hijacking this thread - any opinions on that jazz-psych Jeremy & the Satyrs album on Reprise?
I only have one of their 45s, but I would say it's pretty pedestrian rock stuff. Nothing jazzy or psyche about it. Nothing to indicate where Steig was headed...
but would you say Garage soul, Blue Eyed Soul, Wrinkled popsike soul, psychadelic fruit mix pedestrian rock-soul. qualify yer genre.
...and Edition Special has "Mr. Business".
I disagree. You do not need drugs, a garage, or a studio to make either of these genres.
Garage came first. Appeared in the early 60s, and peaked at '66. Psych was a little bit later although the two overlapped at one point.
Garage rock, was from guys who were just playing simple rock'n roll. cue: 'louie louie'. The Fender guitar was beggining to make its way into homes, and a million local bands started up accross the US (and yes mostly practiced in their garage hence the name). Since these guys were younger, their sound was a bit more aggressive, this is when distortion (ie fuzz) started to come in. Some may have been into drugs, but most were good teenagers who made it home before curfew.
It was these guys and their peers who later made the move to psych/drug music. The hippie stoner sceen was peaking around '68-'69 and that is when the best psych music came out. However, it should also be known that not all psych bands were on drugs.

and more common
Chicago Transit Authority - S/T
yeah, I had the lp - not that good. Really kinda blah blues-rock stuff.
the term 'psych' is abused and misused constantly, and i'm including this site
its one of those things thats just hard to explain, but i know true psych when i hear it
there have always been psych and garage bands since the 60s, and while garage bands hit the top 10 every once in a while, psych bands haven't since the early 70s. few bands from the past 30 years that have been labeled psych live up to the title however...
and i like the jeremy & the satyrs record, but i'm just a fan of heavy bluesy rock of the period...
actually the manfredmannchapter3 shit that im listening to right nfuckin now would prolly fit the beeel.
i love cauldron though. and id love to heard anything that sounds like theit version of god bless the child
