Listen to ‘I’ve Been You’ From New ‘Brown Acid’ Compilation: Premiere
RidingEasy Records' Brown Acid compilation series is back with another helping of hard rock, psychedelic and proto-metal tunes from the late '60s and early '70s that flew under the radar.
The series' latest installment, Brown Acid: The Fourteenth Trip, features nine more head-banging stoner-rock acts that seldom emerged from the underground.
We have an exclusive premiere of one of The Fourteenth Trip's standout songs, Mijal & White's "I've Been You," which combines buzz-saw electric guitar licks with spacey vocals and bubblegum garage-pop hooks. You can listen to the song below.
Mijal & White comprised Detroit-based recording engineer Mike Mijal and local musician Mike White. The duo utilized then-cutting-edge technology, such as modular synthesizers, on its lone single, released in 1973.
Other highlights from the compilation include "Fever Games," a heavy psych rave-up from Harrisburg, Penn., power trio the Legends that name-checks the Jimi Hendrix Experience and features plenty of requisite whammy-bar acrobatics, and Appletree's peppy "You're Not the Only Girl (I'm Out to Get)," which opens with a Grand Funk Railroad-style cowbell groove and is powered by tasty guitar licks and soaring vocal harmonies.
Brown Acid: The Fourteenth Trip arrives, fittingly, on April 20 and is available for preorder now. You can see the full track listing below.
