Song of the Day #37 - LSD and the Search for God - Starshine

RIP Alexander "Sasha" Shulgin


To commemorate or whatever, here's a band named after a chemical he didn't have a hand in making... but there's no band called "2C-B and the Search for the Bathroom" lol. Uhh anyways this is about as close as I get to listening to "psychedelic music" really. Wow, what a fantastic band! Still the very idea of shoegaze, in my mind. The end, when the guitars all start layering and droning, that to me is like, the very sound of the genre. I think this band tops my list of artists I want to see more from... in like, any medium. And the vocals are almost perfect (Calu from Matryoshka is perfect).
