In my pot smoking days, I would bounce back and forth between the Cure's Happily Ever After double album (Seventeen Seconds and Faith as a two-fer) and marathons of the later post-One Bedroom Sea and Cake albums.

a more selective category would be "music that is only halfway decent when stoned" which for me is a significant portion of the classic rock oeuvre

I don't think music with more than 100 bpm is enjoyable when stoned. Music appreciable by someone on pot should be open in one way or the other. There should be details in the music which can be concentrated on when being stoned. Techno for example does not seem a good choice as it is too straight, not subtle enough. But I understand that having smoked weed won't enhance music which isn't convincing when being sober. The effect of THC will only be to focus the listener. If the music is rubbish, it won't improve when you are stoned.

Context. When they showed up *nothing* else sounded like them. They were being stupidly hailed as a "black jesus & Mary Chain" but, besides the judicioususe of guitar feedback, nothing could have been further from the truth. They were doing the layers of blissful guitars and swoony vocals some years before MBV and others took up the mantle.

Acid Hose (Capitaine Jay Vee), Tuesday, 20 June 2017 15:03 (three months ago) Permalink

But it's cool. I know plenty of folks who can't stand AR Kane and then there are those few, like me, who'll be forevah smitten.

Acid Hose (Capitaine Jay Vee), Tuesday, 20 June 2017 15:04 (three months ago) Permalink

A.R.Kane were grouped into a thing that was dubbed Oceanic Rock with some other bands who were pretty unique at the time.
I think Hugo Largo, Saqqara Dogs and a few others. THink that was about 88 so before Loveless.

Stevolende, Tuesday, 20 June 2017 15:07 (three months ago) Permalink

That Oceanic Rock thing is a Simon Reynolds moniker. I *do* remember AR Kane being the first people I ever heard use the term "Dreampop" (describing themselves).

When I was a kid I checked Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man out of the library thinking it was the H.G. Wells sci-fi novel! Anyway, I read about a hundred pages, fully expecting the unnamed downtrodden African American narrator to eventually become a scientist, invent an invisibility potion and go nuts or something. Which he never does, obviously.

Regardless, the book's introductory first chapter smells strongly of sci-fi: Invisible Man lives anonymously in a hidden room in the sewers filled with thousands of light bulbs powered by stolen electricity. He describes how one time he tried to bum a cigarette and someone gave him a marijuana cigarette instead; how he got stoned and listened to Louis Armstrong and his perception of time changed profoundly and things like that. Twelve year old Liam was all like, "Whoa! Weed makes music better!?", a fact he never forgot and eventually found was perfectly true.

Anyway, I'll second Invisible Man and nominate Louis Armstrong's protostoner Hot 5's and 7's as basically peerless weed music. Even the lo-fi time-weathered nature of these records, and also the fact that they are artifacts from what is basically an alien culture at this remove, adds for me a kind of inimitable smoky/ghostly mystique to it all. The stuff has aged like the finest of weed-flavored wines.

If you're into Achim Reichel The Insides' Euphoria lp has a lot of echoplex sounding guitar. Lovely lp alongside a 20 something female singer's angst filled lyrics.

calstars, Friday, 23 June 2017 11:58 (three months ago) Permalink

honestly, this totally depends on my mood AND the type of weed. Mental high = probably cerebral music of some kind: modern classical, Philip Glass, arch avant prog, absract electronic music. OR just listening to whatever I'm into at that moment, and probably hearing new things. When the high wears off, something a lot less demanding of my attention, and probably something I'm really familiar with.

Body high = do I even want to listen to music, or just watch TV? Or talk. If music, then probably something that goes well in the background (and again, familiarity is key). I feel like when a lot of people talk about "music to get stoned to", this is the state they mean.
