Heads on Sticks

Despite the name suited more for a grindcore band than a psychedelic one (although I’m sure there is, or was, a punk or a metal band under that name), the Raleigh, NC based unit Heads on Sticks play sunny, multi-styled psychedelic pop that is so positive in its sound one may not need any drugs to feel better and enjoy life just a teeny tiny bit more. Psychedelia for those tired with 20-minute overdriven, wah-wahed guitar solos or brain-frying shimmering, glacial drones and hungry for beat-driven (sometimes bordering on “beat heavy”), catchy music full of vocal harmonies and infectious hooks.
