Sounds of Echo Fest 2013 #2: Heaven's Gateway Drugs

As a lover of festivals who just so happens to be a lover of psych, it should come as absolutely no surprise in the slightest that the psychedelically-inclined Echo Fest is totally in my wheelhouse. Created and curated by Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor, the Echo Fest (now in year 4) showcases some of the mighty fine psych and experimental bands found out there in the Middle Western territories. Should you find yourself in the greater Detroit area on November 16th, there's not a better event to attend.

Goodness sakes alive, y'all. It is possible that I have found salvation in the form of Fort Wayne, Indiana's Heaven's Gateway Drugs. Too much? Perhaps, but hot, hot damn. This band is ferociously good. Just a touch sinister, their revamped 60s jangle is jarring yet hypnotic. This is psych rock at its delirious best.
