Lucky enough to see Ozrics at several free festivals in late eighties and nineties, once so caned on micro dots I thought I was watching floyd from the meddle era. Great band , nice guys. In similar vein try the ;porcupine tree’
Its a personal choice and each to their own taste however if there is a list of great albums to listen to when stoned then Fleetwood Mac - Rumours has to be on it.If you have never heard it then you are missing out on one of the greatest albums ever made.
+1 for Rumours - there is a great documentary about the making of it...well, about the whole band, how they formed etc. They were basically hating each other when that album was made (which is obvious when you listen to the lyrics). Have a look for it on the iPlayer - well worth a look
Takes me back to the early 90's......that and Moon Safari by Air stand out for me. I listened to Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld by the Orb a lot back then too. I still roll this one out - another great toking album.
From avenged sevenfold through to chopin and everything in between. This is really awesome to listen to. If you want a nice hour musical journey one of the best albums I could listen to from start to finish is Smashing Pumpkins, Siamese Dream, and it's not traditionally my fav music. Or anything Led Zep.
Or as we used to call it....the ultimate album come down album! Not that this happens anymore, but...put this on as the last album of the night/morning after a night of raving and loads of mdma! Perfect!! Thanks for reminding me of this, been about 15 years since I listened to this beast!
You know it - that's how I first discovered it too. And yeah, It's been waaaayyyyy too long since I had one of those nights. As soon as the world gets back to normal I'm going to recreate 'the old days' :-)
Jon Hopkins is a classically trained pianist turned techno genius.
One of his recent album recordings, music for psychedelic therapy, caught my ear a while ago after the release of the promo track, Sit around the fire with East forest and the late, great Ram Dass.
This album is, in my opinion, the ultimate chill. There are some live ambient recordings on this track which give it so much natural flow. For example, Jon and his associates travelled to Tayos Cave in Ecuador and stayed in a the caves for a few days while collecting audio samples of waterfalls. There are birds, butterflies and flowers, some bloops and wooshes etc
With not a single drum beat
The album evolved from there after 10 days in caves, back to London and after a while, during lockdown was compiled into the album.
During this time Jon would take notes while under the influence of ketamine and then work to make any changes.
The albums length is supposed to last the length of a ketamine trip.
Now I don't use ketamine or mushrooms, nothing wrong with that, I've had my share. However there are recent studies to suggest that micro dosing psychedelics can be used to treat a plethora of human psychological issues including depression, anxiety, ptsd, alcoholism and probably many more. This is a good thing helping to remove stigma away from what was thought to be a bad substance. Education is needed not prohibition.
I do use this album in my own way and I fucking love it.
I'm just going to leave that there for now. I need to vape some bud.
If you do trip, shroom,dmt, meditate I recommend this accompanying soundtrack.
If you just want to chill I recommend this sound track.
Rock music is still alive and well, its just not as popular as it used to be. It isnt dangerous and exciting to young people any more, rap/hiphop has taken its place in that regard...
It sucks Greta Van Fleet are the only example being brought up here though, to me they are highly derivative and not really doing anything new.... Check out Clutch, Steven Wilson, Opeth, Graveyard, Lake Street Dive, Menzingers, The Hold Steady, Elephant Tree, Creeper - all great artists making interesting music. And hey there are still SOME big bands, like Biffy Clyro, Foals and Queens of the Stoneage doing pretty cool stuff!
Steve Wilson is a fantastically talented musician, however he's also a mahoosive elitest plonker who for a very long time wouldn't release music on streaming services due to it being "digital" and lower quality and therefore not the experience he wanted for his listener base. He has since changed his stance on this but it along with some really awful interviews he did make me unable to listen to his music (knowingly)
Anyhow I felt like sharing that for no real reason
Anything by Elton John fucking hate the cunt and his music, my wife ruined my Xmas day few years back by telling me a gay singer i didnt like had died. I was so exited then she told me it was George Michael and i was gutted.
I forgot all about this,Hey plenty of Zepp stuff is fine but that song really gets my goat the first time i heard it i never knew who it was my missus had been putting cd's in the laptop and they kept getting synched to my ipod it came on random one day and i just went wtf is this shit before looking who it was, it sounds to me like a holiday camp band doing reggae.
Cool, mine too. Sometimes I feel like the great Alan in your photo speaking to younger people. AHA. I was sick with laughter when he got hit with a cow. Steve coogans characters are genius. All the way back to the calf family
Stupid, depressing lyrics that make no sense at all.
Bedshaped? That'll be a bed then...
I hate it because it reminds me of the two weeks I spent crawling around a 20 inch deep subfloor void for 8 hours a day, doing timber treatments on a huge old house. That shit was on the radio every 20 mins for the whole time we were there.
