I'm glad psychedelic rock and music videos are making a come back. Psychedelic music is half the reason I listen to music period -- read into that whatever you want to read into it -- but I like that you can make music that is spacey and textured without pandering directly to the Phish/weekend hippie crowd. And psych-rock titans Mercury Rev are back witih a new record for this year, The Light In You due out 9/18, and the video for "Are You Ready" shows a band that has continued to refine and master their ornate, lush psych pop. Honestly, the track just makes me wish more psych bands understood the finer points of chamber pop because combining the enveloping warmth of psychedelia with the unashamed beauty of chamber pop seems like a pretty great recipe to me.
