Meet The Roaring 420s

Being a sucker for a great name (and let's be real, this has to be one of the best band names out there), and being that they are purveyors of psych rock, obviously I had to check out The Roaring 420s

Hailing from Dresden, this foursome brings an interesting sound to the party. It's a throwback to the days of wild parties with tuned-in, chemically-enhanced boys and girls shaking themselves silly, and could easily be mistaken for a lost European psych gem of many moons ago. And did I mention there's an electric sitar involved? The band's album What Is Psych? is out now, which is surely rhetorical, because The Roaring 420s definitely knows what's up.
