Full disclosure: I’ve never done acid in my life.
If I were to do acid, I’d imagine that I’d want to do it in a unique place, maybe Europe or Australia. I’d imagine that I’d be doing it after playing a memorable set with my band, and having listened to a great night of music with my friends that are also in bands.
Fortunately, as of today I can officially put that desire to rest. Thanks to Aussie psych-rock natives The Delta Riggs, I now know what it would feel like to be tripping on Acid with a solid crew of fun and rowdy musicians while great music guides me through my trip.
“The Record’s Flawed” is an overwhelmingly fun song that sounds like The Beatles and Rolling Stones wrote a song for Oasis, and then Beck imagined it in his own way, only to be sampled by the Beasties Boys. Probably a bit hyperbolic on my part, but let’s be real, it’s an intercontinental hit. It’s fun, playful, and rocking. It’s retro psychedelic visuals that accompany the song make for a timeless video that will resonate with young and classic rockers alike.
A good ol’ fashion tip of the hat goes to The Delta Riggs today, who had their music video premiered on Huffington Post (oh la la). The video comes as a build up to their sophomore release “Dipz Zebazios”. The Riggs will have an exciting finale to 2014 with performances at CMJ, Culture Collide, and a new release. Check out the video below, and be sure to check out the band here for more information!
