Junior’s buddy expressed an interest in psychedelic pop. Here’s a selection of good albums, one for each decade. There is of course also heavier psych rock with prominent blues guitar in the tradition of Hendrix.
- 60s. Beatles, Revolver
- 70s. This decade produced a treasury of psych rock, prog rock and space rock, but I haven’t got a recommendation for something both poppy and psychedelic.
- 80s. Stone Roses, The Stone Roses
- 90s. Olivia Tremor Control, Music from the Unrealised Film Script ‘Dusk at Cubist Castle’
- 00s. Of Montreal, Aldhil’s Arboretum
- 10s. Tame Impala, Lonerism
