Freeing Minds with a Fuzzadelic Desert Sound !
With a compelling band name like this, you gotta jump in and listen to their self-titled EP. Cooking vintage sounds out of the glittery gulch desert lights of sin city Las Vegas, FreeLSD’s BADTRIP are having fun altering minds with a psychedelic sound.
How is the sound?
Vintage guitar leads, noodling guitar rhythms, groovin’ bass, straight ahead drum beats, bluesy harmonica and tambourine, spaghetti western style harmony vox, dosed out keys, and dark magic lead vocals — FreeLSD’s BADTRIP consists of seven band members, scratch that, now eight.
Playing on mostly vintage equipment, FreeLSD’s BADTRIP stays true to their nostalgic psychedelic roots. Like most EPs, this one is short and sweet. Six groovy well-composed songs. Fun lyrics, trippy tones, desert soundtrack vibes, and soul.
This band can easily be misunderstood for a record that was recorded in 1967. They even pay homage to the Syd Barrett Pink Floyd era, with a wonderful rendition of “Lucifer Sam” which seamlessly moves into another song while keeping the “Lucifer Sam” tone and rhythm.
Why is this album worth listening to?
- Nostalgic desert psych rock is always worth listening to, especially when the band is attempting to free Lysergic acid diethylamide’s bad trip.
In what situation you should listen to this album?
- A tongue full of blotter tabs, dosed sugar cubes, and/or liquid drops.
Something particular to note?
Members Andre and Rex draw a lot of the bands flyers and Andre sketched up the album cover.
