Alright. So I'm going to do acid for the first time sometime soon. I'm looking for psychedelic music, or any good music to listen to while tripping. I'm referring to the quality of being psychedelic. Not necessarily overtly psychedelic rock, pop, metal, et cetera. In terms of musical attributes, whatever makes stoner rock stoner rock is irrelevant to me. I'm just looking for music that has a psychedelic quality about it. Music of all genres, even if it's only vaguely psychedelic. I hope I've made myself clear. I realize it's probably an unusual request. But let's get this going. I appreciate it.
Bonus points for psychedelic hip hop and electronic music. Sorry for the umbrella terms.
Pic somewhat related.
Yeah, more or less. But music that works well with acid. For instance, I like Spiritualized, but I can't imagine that being any good for an acid trip.
Word, have their first three albums ready to go. But they're pretty much the only 'psychedelic' electronic outfit I can think of.
Not a bad recommendation, but that's really going to fuck me up what with the already heavily skewed perception of time that comes along with this kind of a high.
Never heard of them. Will check it out.
Word, the friend of mine I'm going to be tripping with is huge on FlyLo, so his music will definitely appear on the playlist.
I'm going to get shit for this, but Echoes.
Also, Kevin Yazzie is a really good choice. Swans if you're into that shit. A couple Washed Out songs, and maybe Toro Y Moi. Miles Davis. Fleetwood Mac. Your pic related, of course, although I prefer it sober.
Also a good suggestion.
Listening now, I dig it.
I'll just have to take your word on that one, anon.
Word, thought about them. Want to steer away from the more obvious classics though. I've heard those albums so many times, you know. But Rainy Day, Dream Away through Still Raining, Still Dreaming is some seriously crazy shit that I wouldn't pass up listening to on acid for the world. Love it.
I want to chill. Definitely don't want to hear anything that's going to freak me out and make the trip go bad. Like. Can. That shit is so psychedelic as far as I'm concerned, but there's no way in hell I'm going to be listening to Tago Mago while on acid. I'd be almost afraid to try that.
Yeah, I find that shoegaze accommodates psychedelia very well. Psychedelia via shoegaze, or just noisy rock in general really, is one my musical fetishes. And I can feel Pet Sounds, for sure.
Just listen to shit you already like. There's no point in seeking out new music when you can listen to something you already know and love and be blown away by how different and enveloping it sounds. Some of the best times I've ever had on acid were listening to shit that's not psychedelic at all.
Sergeant Pepper's - The Beatles
Innerspeaker - Tame Impala
Broken Soul Jamboree - Tipper
ITCOTCK - King Crimson
Bill Frisell - With Dave Holland and Elvin Jones
If you choose just one of these I recommend Tame Impala.
Saw them live while I tripping on acid. Amazing experience.
Also OP, any Animal Collective album. They got a cool psych thing going on.
Not going to get any shit from me, anon. Echoes is fucking spacey and great. Used to listen to Meddle while smoking weed all the time. Echoes is one of my favorite Floyd songs, for sure.
Alright. That's a good suggestion. I kind of figured. Even if it's not psychedelic music I'm listening to, taking acid is still an incredibly psychedelic experience. It is a psychotropic, after all. So. It will all work out, I'm sure.
Probably not, though I do love that album
Going to listen to a lot of Sun Ra, actually, so I've already got the jazz side of things covered
Maybe. Can't imagine B&S on acid though.
I've heard their catalog too, anon. Shit's even crazier and there's absolutely no chance I'd listen to that shit on acid.
It'd be an experience, nonetheless.
Flying Saucer Attack for sure, love their first two albums.
Probably going to go with Spirit, Sung Tongs, Feels and Strawberry Jam, honestly. Nothing against MPP, just prefer the others.
I'll give it a go. :3
I wasn't seriously considering it. Besides, if I were to listen to any Swans album on acid, it would probably be Soundtracks. Which would probably be even worse as a lot of people are pointing out.
No, but I wouldn't mind hearing how dumb I sound. I invite you to elaborate if you'd care to.
>watching Eraserhead on shrooms
Dear God, anon. How are you not kill?
>Not already being in love with The Motif's singer.
Come on, anon, step it up!
Somebody, else raised this point as well. And it's a good point. On acid, all music becomes psychedelic. But I still have to imagine that music created with the intention of being psychedelic still makes for a remarkable experience. I don't know. You definitely have a point though.
When I listened to it, I changed every perceivable texture in the room to woodgrain and watched termites eat it away to leave me sitting on nothing in the middle of an endless white salt flat.
It later turned out that my friend just flipped on the lights, which was why everything got all bright, and I was on 9 doses, but still. 10/10.
That's just it, anon. I am kill.
But seriously, check out Kevin Yazzie. Some SJWs might give you shit for culture appropriation or whatever, but his Four Harmonized Peyote Songs are fucking incredible. Other than that, I'd maybe suggest Sweet Trip's self titled. Great stuff.
Also, what the fuck is up with captcha. I don't want to identify potatoes.
What the fuck.
But it might be the combination of those simply nauseating drones in the latter half of the title track and it being the first time getting completely fucked up on haze (like, I couldn't even lift my arm at a certain point; drifting in and out of consciousness and closed eye visuals).
I'll check him out, sounds cool. Never gave much regard to the whole social justice whatever anyway. And Sweet Trip is awesome. Will do, for sure. Thanks for reminding about that shit. And captcha is annoying these days.
Just listen to anything you normally enjoy. You will hear a lot of things you haven't heard before from it and it's going to be beautiful.
Normally I prefer music like techno or deep house, ambient is really good too when coming down. Other cool genres when tripping: trip-hop, chillwave, dream pop, shoegaze... Any band will do.
Also, if you see yourself too high to know what to put, go to www.di.fm, you'll hear some amazing electronic music.
It just turns into noise. Pink floyd is bad enough and I wasn't even listening to it, I just had Breathe stuck in my head for 7 hours. I don't like to trip sid so my recs are geared more towards skullfucking indica.

good luck with your trip, OP. make sure you're in a safe environment with a babysitter.
Ratatat's Classics album. I heard it was an experience
Lifeforms from the Future Sound of London
To some considered TFSoL best work, a masterpiece of psychedelia with a focus on organic sounds.
I listened to it while on acid for the first time and will always recommend it!
In all seriousness, I will check it out. Thanks, anon.
You know, funny thing. My friend and I both have pretty substantial CD collections. We own most all of what's being discussed in this thread. We'll probably end up going with your suggestion if all else fails. Thanks for your input.
Best trip of my life. I hope that you can enjoy this as much as me, or more.

Albums are the best on acid. They make so much more sense. I think it all depends on your music taste sober but my favourites and ones my friends have liked when tripping balls are:
- Flaming Lips - Soft Bulletin
- J Dilla - Donuts
- Avalanches - Since I Left You (if you listen to one LISTEN TO THIS ON ACID ITS THE BEST)
- Sly Stone - There's A Riot Going On
- Beastie Boys - Pauls Boutique
- Bob Marley and the Wailers
- Animal Collective
- Pet Sounds, Sgt Peppers, they're popular drug albums for a reason
I smoke weed when I do acid as well though so that influences my taste a bit.
>It's called a trip because you never stay in one spot during it.
>>It's called a trip because you never stay in one spot during it.
Such deep. So going places.
Honestly OP, once the LSD goes on your tongue, you'll realize that these suggestions will mostly be meaningless. You'll be so caught up in the splendor of it all that you'll be able to know what you want to listen to much better than a sober person.
That being said, my fondest tripping memories were with Master of Reality by Black Sabbath, Sung Tongs by AnCo (the last 2 songs really melted my brain), and Daydream Nation by Sonic Youth. Also, any Pavement album well ensure a pleasant time, every time.
Don't depend on suggestions, follow your own intuition, that's what the psychedelic experience should be about.
The last 10 minutes of Cop Shoot Cop will drive you crazy.
