Welcome to the Psychedelic Shack, the paisley palace where the incense is always burning and yes, we do feel like you do. Come on in, we've left the (Day-Glo) light on for you…
Dissidents & Dancers
See Monkey Do Monkey
The Method plays psychedelic garage rock like it's 1966, sometimes working a little Memphis soul into the sound as they do on "Your Humble Entertainers." Surf guitar lurks in the psychedelia of "Whip Around" and "Consider This Your Warning" is appropriately performed as ominous pyschobilly. "Dissidents & Dancers" could have been a radio hit back in the day, right alongside tracks like "Incense & Peppermints" and "Venus." Nothing here gets too wiggy but sitar-like guitar work on the Animals-esque closer "Habitual" adds an international feel to the already interdimensional. Singer Richie Hayes has a Richard Ashcroft-meets-Marty Balin voice that lends itself perfectly to psych sounds both vintage and modern, making him a good travel companion for right now.
