Espers - Espers (2004)
Where would I be without the calming transcendent waves of psychedelic folk music? Espers, from Philadelphia, are a trio on this album, but have expanded their line-up to include a few more players. Here, their brand of medieval psychedelic folk is at its breeziest. Flutes and acoustic guitars float and tumble and drones and washes hover in the backdrop, threatening to ruin the peace. In 2006 they released the much darker II and it is proof positive that their sound is the real deal, harkening back to 60's British psychedelia.
