The Blue Moon’s busy October schedule kicks off with the fuzz-pop stylings of Acid Tongue on the 1st, expect surfy garage rock that’s as catchy as it is kooky. The band release their debut album this month (13th) so this one gives us a chance to enjoy a preview of the record.
Acid Tongue is the fuzz-pop brainchild of Seattle’s Guy Keltner (formerly of stoner-rock outfit Fox and the Law) & Ian Cunningham – perverted in their youth by adolescent exposure to mind-altering substances and strange, spiritually-driven parenting techniques. Blending elements of AM-radio soul, vintage psychedelia, folk and slacker rock, the band has developed an avid cult following throughout the US and the UK.
After years of extensive traveling throughout the United States, as well as some experimental therapy in a Mexican yurt, the boys have united to produce their take on the music of their parents’ generation. Incorporating imagery of the afterlife, dream-states and drifter-culture, Acid Tongue seeks to enlighten listeners to their swingin, contemplative lifestyle.
