Sounds Of Austin Psych Fest #1: The Meek

If I could dream up my absolute ideal festival in my head, it would probably end up looking a little bit like Austin Psych Fest. The Black Angels beat me to it, and that’s alright with me. They know what they're doing. For the fifth time, TBA and the Reverberation Appreciation Society are putting on one heck of a party down in Austin featuring the best and brightest of the psych rock scene. I’m not going (heartbreak), but if I was, this is who I’d be checking out for damn sure.

The Meek most certainly does not make music that is remotely meek, mild-mannered, or mousy. No sir. The LA hypnotists churn out glorious, golden intoxications, electric and languidly seductive at once. I can only imagine how delicious the drone of "Grave" must be live. This is a band that has bowled me over almost instantaneously, and I feel like I've sold my soul to be hearing a song this good. Get a taste for yourself below.
