    Decided to check these guys out after going through a phase with the Hash Jar Tempo stuff... very impressed thus far--some of the finest psychedelic rock of ALL TIMES! I do pray an American tour is in order!

    Amanita or Dilate could also be good starting points. All depends on which style you prefer though.
