Psyched up for Guckkasten! @_@

Psychedelic rock is a style of rock music that is inspired or influenced by psychedelic culture and attempts to replicate and enhance the mind-altering experiences of psychedelic drugs. ~ Wikipedia

So my student and I were talking about rock concerts and bands and she mentioned this indie rock group. At first I didn’t catch their name so I asked her to spell it out. 😀 I immiediately googled them and of course I downloaded their album 😀 This song really stuck to me instantly. I like the fact that most of their songs have more ‘melody’ or ‘instrumental’ parts… it doesn’t have that much lyrics so it’s not really the ‘noisy and loud’ kind of rock. I liked it because it has just the right amount of rock and it’s quite… addictive… to say the least. I was trying to get some power nap while listening to their album but I wasn’t able to sleep. There was something about the piercing sound of the guitar and the hauntingly beautiful vocals that kept me awake… Some of their songs actually have apsychedelic rock feel to it… It’s addictive and haunting at the same time. it makes me dizzy yet I still want more. @.@ 

I can’t really compare them to any other band… so it’s good because it feels like the first time I’m hearing something extraordinary like this. ^^ I’m not very particular with rock music. I just listen to them based on recommendations or popularity… I do pay attention to the rhythm and how ‘ROCK’ their songs are… I have my ‘rock meter’ XD I don’t like sth TOO ROCK or TOO FAKE ROCK… ^^;;;

Another thing that amuses me about them… their songs are freakin’ long. Each song is longer than 4 minutes. But you don’t get bored with it. The melody and the beat just draws you in and you enjoy it as you listen to it more. ^^ AND they can mellow down, like in their song “GAVIAL”, so it’s not just purely rock. But then again… we can still hear the screeching sound of the guitar at the end of that song…^^;;

Out of habit, I decided to GOOGLE them… although it doesn’t really matter that much if they’re good-looking or not because it’s THEIR MUSIC that I like… I just tend to do that, you know– GOOGLE everyone. ^^

They’re all older than me… and they all look like serious indie rock musicians. No one looks like someone who can pass an audition for a Kpop flower boy idol group or something. Thank god. XD

But it’s kinda amusing that they have a member named KIM KIBUM. XD I bet it’s either of those guys wearing shorts… XD

^ Another thing that I like is their fashion style…? Haha. I was expecting to see some GACKT or HYDE-looking dudes or someone who looks like a fanboy of Marily Manson… or atleast Aerosmith… ^^;;; But they look… normal… to say the least. Hehe. 😀

“I tried making sense of it, and then I realized I should be trying to make sense as to why I was even trying to make sense… “ ~ Psychedelic quote from http://www.shroomery.org
 

CR: I don’t own anything. NOTHING. If you own them, lemme know. I will definitely credit you. 😀
