I love the late 60's psychedelic music:

Pink Floyd
Can
Jefferson Airplane
Big Brother and the Holding Company
Quicksilver Messenger Service
Moby Grape
The United States of America
Blue Cheer
Jimi Hendrix
The Doors

I don't go a day without listening to at least one of these bands.

I was obsessed with 60s psychedelic rock last year. Still love it offcourse, but makes me feel kind of sad since I was very depressed at the time. Favorite bands:

13th floor elevators
Grateful Dead
Jefferson Airplane
Love (Forever Changes is IMO when of the best albums ever)
Syd Barett and early Pink Floyd
The psychedelic Beatles are great!! !
The Zombies
The Small Faces
Quicksilver Messenger Service
Flat Earth Society
Velvet Undergroud are also great, but are more like the dark side of the trip


Apart from the above I always liked (and always will like) trippy, experimental but melodic music

Quote:
Quicksilver Messenger Service


Oh God, pride of man... broken in the dust again.

I'd also add (and apologies if these aren't considered "true psychedelic"..) Amorphous Androgynous, Acid Mothers Temple, West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, Dream Syndicate, Porcupine Tree, Moody Blues, Count Five, Brain Ticket, Red Crayola, High Tide, Parson Sound, White Heaven, Mad River.

If we consider progressive rock as part of psychedelic, I'd have to include some of the groups involved in the Rock In Opposition movement (and movements which followed) like Captain Beefheart, Univers Zero, Guapo, Art Zoyd, Entron Fou LeLoublan, Fred Frith, French TV, Henry Cow, Miriodor, Stormy Six, Potemkine, Banda Elastica, Lindsay Cooper, Miasma and the Carousel of Headless Horses, My Bloody Valentine (does Shoegaze count as Psychedelic?)

I could go on, but I'm trying to stay within the realm of psychedelic here, whereas the groups today are usually considered more avant-garde or have mixed into sub-forms of electronic music. But I grew up in the 90s and was a neo-hippie that attended mostly alternative rock concerts and raves as opposed to jam band venues or classic rock and folk concerts. As a youngster I was into Jungle, IDM, Industrial, Progressive House, and Psytrance (hence my appreciation for psychedelic roots). Nowadays I'm fascinated by many genres from all eras.. but I have soft spots for electronic, 90s alternative, psychedelic (and 60s classic rock/ folk) and classical music (especially Bach) above all else.

Not so much psychedelic but I listen to some funk sometimes. Then again I listen to everything.

I like the Heliocentrics - http://www.stonesthrow.com/nowagain/heliocentrics/

Wow, I haven't thought of Hawkwind in years and years. I remember a magazine article saying they were going to be the greatest Psych Band ever, and then Floyd released Dark Side. I get a royal kick out of Atom Heart Mother, although I doubt anyone else would enjoy listening with me. I went out and purchased Syd's solo albums back in the early 70's. Loved his stuff ! ! I even bought several bootleg albums, and still have one of them. Went to see Waters in concert and he did Interstellar Overdrive, I almost fell over ! !! (He played cards with the rest of the band while the drummer did his solo.) Lately I've listened to Mars Volta, but didn't like how muddled the lyrics were.

I have always liked the mainstream music from the 60's and 70's, I.e. Hendrix, Doors, etc. But lately, with the internet, I'm really getting into obscure psychedelic bands.

Comus
Bonniwell Music Machine
Tripsichord Music Box
The Neighb'rhood Childr'n
Baby Grandmothers

Many others, but I don't have my ipod handy.

Around the one-year anniversary of Syd's passing, I wrote a couple of articles about him if anyone's interested:
