It’s not exactly news that we’re smack dab in the middle of a psych-rock revival. Fests like Levitation (formerly Austin Psych Fest), and Psych Del Rio (which is coming in September), prove that the audience for trippy music is growing and bands like LA’s Mystic Braves are more relevant now than ever. Combining desert blues guitar riffs with noodly organs and reverberating vocals that echo to infinity, Mystic Braves have been swirling audiences in kaleidoscope rays of sound since their 2013 self-titled debut. Something to appreciate about these dudes, too is their outfits – I mean, if you’re gonna be a 60s psych-rock revival group, you might as well go all the way right? From haircuts to hankerchiefs to hallucinogenic induced riffing, Mystic Braves embody psychedelia to the T.
