Holy cow, The Telescopes. If you’re gonna talk pure, undliuted, amazing psychedelia, their name has to come up, because of all the shoegaze wave of bands, to which they nominally belong, they are by far the strangest and trippiest. For my money, “High On Fire” is one of the two or three best singles of that entire era, and unlike their contemporaries, the ‘scopes have continued unabated, making music that is increasingly droney, spacey and utterly weird. Like go listen to Auditory Illusions, which has a 14-minute drone epic called “Flying/Transmutations/A Cabin In The Sky” that pretty much hovers around one note. NIFTY. Love. Comets-ov-Cupid are pretty much the same deal—oh, the glorious spacerock of their 20-minute epic “Metalgazer.” And you guys know from past reviews that we love Flavor Crystals and Magic Castles, so this is some droney psych goodness. -Jon Hunt
