Stoned – A Psych Tribute To The Rolling Stones – 14 Shining Stars Of The Neo-Psych Scene Reinterpret Classics From The Rolling Stones!

Includes performances by Clinic, The Vacant Lots, Celestial Bums, Allah-Las, Pure X, The Tulips, Tashaki Miyaki, and more!

Los Angeles, CA – EVERYBODY MUST GET STONED!…Dylan declared in ‘66 just a year or so after The Rolling Stones got their initial hit of major commercial success with arguably the most addictive song of all-time “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” It was their first international #1 single, and a high they would chase (and catch!) for the next 4 decades as they would go on to create one of the most mind-blowingly potent canons in modern music. But if you think you’ve plumbed the depths of the Jagger/Richards pharmacy, just wait until you hear what the newest psych rock junkies do to these well-known tonics. From The Vacant Lots’ stimulating take on “She Smiled Sweetly” to Clinic’s hallucinogenic version of “I Know It’s Only Rock & Roll (But I Like It),” these young bands take Stones classics to places they’ve never been before. The full album entitled Stoned – A Psych Tribute To The Rolling Stones featuring 14 tracks will be available everywhere starting January 20 from Cleopatra Records.

The Allah-Las, like many of the bands featured here, dug deep into the Stones vast catalog for their cover of the 1963 gem “Stoned.” Meanwhile, Barcelona quartet Celestial Bums declared, “We are very honored that we got the chance to do that since for us The Rolling Stones is probably the best rock band in history. We chose ‘Child Of The Moon’ for being quite an unknown song that at same time has an amazing essence of their psych period.” L.A.-based trio Tashaki Miyaki shares, “Covering a song by such a legendary band was a bit daunting. We delved a little deeper into the Stones catalog to find something less heard that would compliment our band’s sound. ‘Take It or Leave It’ seemed like the right vibe.” Of course, more well-known songs such as “Sympathy For The Devil,” “Gimme Shelter,” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” also got the psych remake treatment with astounding results. Available on both CD and vinyl, Stoned – A Psych Tribute To The Rolling Stones has the cure for the musical boredom that ails you!

1. Lorelle Meets The Obsolete – What A Shame

I am intrigued by this, curious about the way the songs are covered.

I imagine that many would take exception to the writer's interpretation of Dylan's "Everybody Must Get Stoned". I understood it to mean kind of "damned if you do, damned if you don't", you'll be criticized whatever you do.

That aside, has anyone here heard any of this?

This seems to be at least a curious project. I've found only one of these songs on YouTube, and I still don't know what to think about it.

Ironically, only 1 of the 14 tracks are from the Stones' own foray into psych.

This would have made a nice addition, though it's been out since 2012.

What a horrible cover, depicting the nasty side of the Stones druggy period instead of the beautiful, wild and innocent psychedelic era.

I liked the above "She Smile Sweetly" til the vocals come in, then it seems to become more no-wave or post-punk than neo-psych.

I wonder why, given it's neo-psychedelia, the [intended-to-be-jarring] image of a needle and spoon is featured? If they're getting off on smack to produce this stuff no wonder it only sounds partially psychedelic. Tho it doesn't sound very stoned at all.

It's kind of refreshing. though -- unlike the Paul McCartney "tribute" album of a few months ago, where so many of the artists sounded like they were trying to reproduce the original arrangements, rather than do something original with the songs.

Where is Tame Impala, Wooden Shjips, Black Angels, Asteroid #4, Black Mountain and Temples???

This is a cool project although they completely botched the cover.. replace the needle with ANYTHING and it would have been better.

Rubbish, simply rubbish - from with the attention-craving cover right to the dull song selection. "Psych" ? Gimme a break.
