Trip Out Music

Postby Seppuku on Fri Jan 18, 2008 2:31 pm

What would you say is the best music to trip out to?

I'll kick things off with Porcupine Tree's Post-Rock/Ambient/Illbient concept album, Voyage 34. Even though it's almost a wordless record, it's still got enough narration to know that it's about a guy called Brian who "never had a bummer in some 33 LSD trips." but, "on Voyage 34, he finally met himself coming down an up staircase, and the encounter was crushing."

EDIT: Also, I once took a couple doses of salvia to Talk Talk's Laughing Stock, and can recommend the experience to everyone.

It's a little cliche but Massive Attack is usually a solid bet. Especially "Angel" (even more cliche, I know.) The first 4 or so tracks of 100th Window are also pretty hypnotic.

Also, I thoroughly enjoy Traffic in certain states of mind. "Dear Mr. Fantasy" and "Heaven is In Your Mind."

One of these days I'm going to listen to Kingsley and Perry and see what happens- it might frighten me though. All those barnyard noises.

Loveless is pretty awesome.
Blues For The Red Sun and Welcome To Sky Valley by Kyuss are outstanding tripping out albums.
anything that Thievery Corporation released.
Aim - Cold Water Music.
Elitism is positing that your taste is equivalent to quality, you hate "Hamlet" does it make it "bad"? If you think so, you're one elite motherfucker.

Grayfolded- featuring the music of The Grateful Dead, produced by John Oswald.
More info at Wiki.

Sandwich that in the middle of Dark Star from their classic album "Live Dead" and you have yourself the ultimate Classic Trip album. Trust me.

Miles Davis' Bitches Brew and his early 70's live stuff works as well, too.

Anything by Morcheeba.

Thom Yorke - Eraser. Totally can get lost in the patterns.

Ive actually tripped to Beethoven. That was quite interesting. You really flow with the music.

Flaming Lips. They even have a colored DVD to help with the tripping.

Did you know that's sampled from the Psycho III soundtrack?

(that's my cliff claven moment of the day, thank you very much).

Anyway, as cliche as it is:

side 2 of Meddle (Echoes)
OK Computer
Court of the Crimson King
McCartney 2, Ram and Band on the Run

and Beethoven's 9th.

Edit: LOL @ stereos.
And good call on Morcheeba, their first album for sure. That was my "make out" music in my early 20's.

Two very excellent choices, and who doesn't fancy some lovely, lovely Ludwig Van?

this query always makes me chuckle.

if I'm shrooming, honestly...as long as I like the band/song, it don't really matter, as EVERYTHING sounds better.

Seriously, last time I shroomed, after spending several hours in the park, we came home and the eclectic listening session that followed included such diverse acts as Boredoms and Sam "the man" Cooke (the awesome majesty of Super ae and Vision Creation Newsun from the world's reigning rock kings, and "A Change is Gonna Come" from Sam stands out from that session).

but what kind of "trip"? I've never had a bad mushroom experience, but acid? You mean stuff that'll calm your panicking ass down? I suppose one could get all meta and listen to Orange Juice, but I don't think that'll really help...
Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

For sure I wouldn't listen to most of this stuff if I really was ego-tripping at the gates of hell.

If it's mushrooms, then I'm usually with quite a few others, so whatever's a good enough compromise- Roots Manuva, Aesop Rock or something.

If it's acid, then every single bit of possible input's a big deal. I'd especially not want to listen to some of the freakier shit that I bend to these days. Soul music, Jacques Brel, or most likely nothing at all. The time I really need music is when it's been 10 hours on that stuff and you still don't see yourself snapping out of it anytime soon.

So I guess what most people imagine as Trip Out music is really just a simulation of the real deal. If you really tried to time your experience with, say, that Porcupine Tree album I mentioned, you'd probably climb down off Jacob's Ladder more frazzled than Syd Barrett.

Well, I don't use drugs (just alcohol), but I imagine that if I did, I'd listen to the 70s French-Canadian band called Harmonium. They managed to combine elements of folk, prog-rock, and jazz into some very adventurous songwriting, particularly on their album L'Heptade.

Over ten years ago (when I used to "trip") we would listen to the following eclectic list:

KMFDM
My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult ("13 Above the Night" is an awesome album)
Lords of Acid (Mr. Machoman on acid is wild)
Sister Machinegun
Pink Floyd
The Beatles
Flaming Lips
Nine Inch Nails (although it has some really bad vibes, usually)
Violent Femmes (their Low-fi first album was a hoot on blotters)
The Doors
David Bowie
