If you have been paying attention to the internet and the mainstream media for the past couple of years, you probably noticed that psychedelics are all the rage these days. Even though psychedelics are rigidly controlled at the federal level, initial research indicates that they have the potential to alleviate a variety of mental health conditions with relatively few side effects. As a result, millions of dollars have been invested into psychedelic research, and more people are looking to consume hallucinogenic drugs for health, wellness and spiritual purposes.
Survey data shows that around 8% of young American adults reported using hallucinogenic drugs such as psilocybin and LSD in 2021. From as far back as the 1960s, recreational psychedelic use among adults — young and old — was often accompanied by music. Pioneering psychedelic researchers were even curating playlists that they used in psychedelic therapies.
Even as psychedelics were banned at the federal level, a cadre of artists continued producing music that was quite suited to the psychedelic experience. Here is a list of five artists whose music could enhance and enrich your psychedelic experience:
The Avalanches are a duo of musicians from Australia that create electronic music from multitudes of samples. Their debut studio album, “Since I Left You,” received critical acclaim from critics and was listed as the 10th-best album in Australia.
Eola is a voice-only project made by Edwin M. White, an Orlando native who is part of the psychedelic rock duo Tonstartssbandht. The project uses stacked effects and overdubbed vocal loops to create ethereal soundscapes that oscillate between disconcerting and upbeat.
SPELLLING is an American artist who mostly specializes in experimental pop music. She creates mystical, otherworldly, and often intricate soundscapes that can almost transport the listener to a magical, fantastical realm. Her second and latest album, “Turning the Wheel,” used the talents of more than 20 instrumentalists, and the result is a high-concept project filled with beautiful vocals, precise instrumentation and outstanding lyricism.
Lyra Pramuk is a German artist whose music is a fusion of classical vocalism, pop sensibilities, performance practices and contemporary club culture. Her first album, “Fountain,” doesn’t feature any instruments whatsoever, with her voice being modulated using different hardware and software to create compositions of beautiful harmonies and syncopated loops. The result is a genre-jumping rollercoaster of emotion that will leave any psychedelic user feeling renewed and refreshed once it is over.
Raveena has spent the past seven or so years making experimental contemporary R&B and pop with a soul and jazz twist. The Indian-American artist croons about trauma, failed relationships, love and death in her music, incorporating personal experiences and interludes from family amid beautiful, lush soundscapes.
You could also listen to the music from the artists above while reading up on the latest from psychedelics startups such as atai Life Sciences N.V. (NASDAQ: ATAI).
