Acid Mothers Temple / PERHAPS / Obedient Skull

When: Tue., May 20, 8:30 p.m. 2014

Acid Mothers Temple brings their iconic, trippy psych back to the Cleve tonight. Hailing from Japan, Acid Mothers Temple is touring as “Acid Mothers Temple and the Melting Paraiso U.F.O.,” and they’ll be traveling across the U.S. and Canada for the next couple months. Their latest release, Astrorgasm from the Inner Space, isn’t due out until later this month, but they’re expected to give you a preview of their new stuff tonight. Each track on the album averages about 18 minutes. The first two, “Dark Star Blues” and “Pleasure Mantra of Sorrows,” start the whole thing off with a haunting voice both sad and esoteric, set within a backdrop of spaceship noises and echoing guitar. “Kiss the Tangerine Dream House” takes on a decidedly Eastern appeal with Bollywood-like vocals and catchy a guitar riff designed to sound like a sitar. Finally, “Astrorgasm From the Inner Space” is a noise track suited perfectly as a soundscape for a launch into space as you wake up aboard some strange alien spacecraft. Together, all four tracks meld into a positively lysergic freakout. (Trenholme)
