Hailing from Glasgow, The Kundalini Genie are a psychedelic band. By psychedelic, I don't mean 60's psychedelic, although there is a strong 60's vibe here. Their latest single, "Half In, Half Out" is more 90's psychedelic. Of course, 90's psychedelia was riding heavily on the coattails of the 60's. But this song has some heavy 90's guitar fuzz that wasn't quite as strong in the mid 1900's. "Half In, Half Out" sounds like My Bloody Valentine decided to be a jam band in their prime, or like J Mascis spent a little too much time snowboarding in Vermont. This is a great song that smashes a bunch of nostalgia buttons all at once.
You can watch the video for "Half In, Half Out" below. Half In, Half Out, the album, is due out November 12. You can pre-order a copy over at Bandcamp. For more on The Kundalini Genie, check out the band's Facebook and Twitter.
