RIYL: Spacemen 3, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Warlocks

Label: Yard Press Records

The “Stone Tape Theory” was theorized by Thomas Charles Lethbridge in 1961. The archaeologist, parapsychologist and explorer developed the idea that inanimate materials can absorb energy from living beings, and that this mental electrical energy, released during emotional or traumatic events, could somehow be “stored” in such materials and “reproduced” under certain conditions.

The gamut of psychedelic music is so vast, opposite extremes of the genre sound like completely separate entities.  Stephen Lawrie, founder of The Telescopes, is on a sedated trip on this one.  Stone Tape is 6 tracks soundtracking the ‘slipping through the floor’ weightiness of a heavy trip, the knockout punch of a needle, the glazed-over trance after it gets into your blood.  Fans of Spacemen 3’s mellow side will dig this one, I assure you.
