Acid Tongue
(Freakout Records / Failure By Design Records)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.

"Like King Gizzard on a whole bunch of Ritalin, there’s a wooziness to Acid Tongue’s psych oddity that quells the madness. It’s no less otherwordly for it, though, Charlie Manson [is] dealing in a cross-eyed, surfy garage rock that’s as catchy as it is kooky."

"No genre of music is safe from getting 'licked up' by the tongue."

Portsmouth / London psychedelic dream pop
