Dark Fog
Dark Fog
Chicago’s Dark Fog might be part of our city’s burgeoning psych scene. But they might also be a chunk of the 90′s throwback indie scene as well. See, there’s as much My Bloody Valentine as there is Hawkwind in their sound. Two great tastes that taste great together, as they say. Really heavy guitars mix with droney vocals to produce something pretty darn cool here. Kind of, dare I say, like early Smashing Pumpkins? Dare I? I just did. Loud Loop Press
Classic Plastic Crimewave Sound
Classic Plastic Crimewave Sound
Chicago spacepunk unit in operation since 2001, which has been lauded in Mojo, Wire, Julian Cope's Head Heritage, etc. PCWS delivers blasts of motor-city acid-rock, Japanese-style psychedelic scree, yet touching on cosmic krautrock and eastern folk-blues at times. Plastic Crimewave also does the Galactic Zoo Dossier mag, Secret History of Chicago Music newspaper strip and radio show, Million Tongues Festivals, and plays with DRMWPN and Moonrises
Rabble Rabble
Rabble Rabble
Rabble Rabble is a psych punk band that hails from Chicago, IL. Their sound, developed over the course of the past four years, has grown in to a contemporary take on psychedelic rock. The band creates a complex layering of sound rich with blues undertones and frenetic guitar play.
Verma
Verma
"...Tranced out, drone-y, repetitious, atmospheric psych with some Hawkwind-esque synth textures over the top. Dare we compare them to an instrumental hybrid of Can and Hawkwind? We dare." - Lance Barresi, Permanent Records
Red Plastic Buddha
Red Plastic Buddha
Formed in late 2005, Chicago’s Red Plastic Buddha developed a sound reminicent of the best elements of late 60s British psychedelia, alternating between swirling sonic landscapes and catchy, melody driven pop.
Founding members were Timothy Ferguson (vocals, bass guitar), Todd Lazar (lead guitar), Todd Leiter Weintraub (guitar, backing vocals), Dav Kling (drums, percussion) and Matt Walters (keyboards).
