What does psych rock mean? What are psychedelic sounds and how are those sounds made? Perhaps we all can get some insight into these questions as we explore artists past and present. Psychedelic is a term coined in the 1940’s which means “mind manifesting”, in other words, making the mind visible.  In the early days of psychedelic music, drugs, yoga, meditation, and lifestyle all played an important role in the music. However, in contemporary times the history of rock and electronic music is so vast that one only needs to tune-in to the music to understand its aesthetic and to creatively drive. 

The artists explored here are all traversing lightly charted territory that they can claim as their own. For many fame and stadium tours are not a goal they strive for, although, I would not be surprised if it happened.
