They namedrop Frank Zappa's 'Peaches en regalia' on that pitchfork feature upthread and I've got to say it is a spot on influence on their trademark sound and that of other similar sounding bands like Dungen. I do not know why I never noticed before.

I am a bit late
Get this without a fucking doubt.
Psych bollox is not my tree btw. neither is acid
This though is blissful, right down to the cover. The bassist is genius. Reminds me of Greg Norton from the Du. Melodic as fuck

good live show, more competent than particularly great. could be a great live show with just a few changes:1) play louder. a lot louder.2) don't front-load the set so much3) learn how to wig out properly a.s.a.p.

This album would be great... if it had come out in 2005. As it is I feel like I've burnt out on Dungen-style stuff since then, and this doesn't seem to be as exciting as that, so I feel a bit meh about it.

I still really like these guys, I get the Dungen comparions but I feel like this stuff works because Dungen has moved further away from the psych-rock thing and more into a psych-jazz sort of thing on recent albums. This sort of like picks up the slack of circa 2005 Dungen a little.

I finally picked this up on CD this past week, and was surprised to read in the liner notes that it's pretty close to a one-man project. Not sure how their live outfit is these days.
OTM about Dungen comparisons.

I really loved this album, so I guess it's time to check out some Dungen...

FINALLY am going to see them at Outside Lands in Aug. I don't care if I'm like 2 years late, I'm excited!
I'm probably going to date myself a little but they remind me a little of Snout. Possibly just the 60's connection idk

this album is kind of stunning, you just have to be in the right mood to hear it. honestly, that has been awhile.

I agree that Dungen is off the mark. Try early Radio Dept. and you're getting closer.
