Supernatural Equinox

Supernatural Equinox
Outrageous Cherry
Rainbow Quartz

Although most of its users use pot typically for its depressant qualities ? that is, to relax ? the Drug Enforcement Agency has it classified as a hallucinogen. Psychedelic? Hardly, if stoners have any say in things.

Likewise, the term ?psychedelic? is thrown about rather carelessly in regards to music as well as drugs. While just about every pop-playing bunch of indie rockers cites some sort of psychedelic influence, there are few that actually sound like they?ve got more association with psilocybin mushrooms or acid than just a passing affectation with Strawberry Alarm Clock and Jefferson Airplane records.

Outrageous Cherry is the sort of act that?s the real deal. Full of everything from wah-wah pedals and bad-trip distortion to quasi-Eastern overtones with sitar and oddball time signatures, Supernatural Equinox is a two-hits-of-acid album in a world that?s more used to mild marijuana hallucinogens. With a sound that?s drenched in psychedelic traditions, the band toes the psych-rock hard line to deliver a record that wouldn?t sound too out-of-place if it surfaced on Haight and Ashbery in 1971. The band rocks like it?s the early ?70s from a fuzzed-out space guitar and pure psychedelic themes (?Girl, You Have Magic Inside You?), or takes a light, sun-filled trip full of bubblegum vocal melodies and droning bass (?Saturday Afternoon?). Even when the act eases off its head-trip sounds, things are distinctly more tripped-out than their psychedelic counterparts, with fuzzy guitars and noodling that sits somewhere between acid-jazz mess arounds and a trip through the looking glass.

Cherry?s dedication to the hard-and-fast psychedelic is pretty cool, but it comes with a heavy tradeoff: Supernatural Equinox is tied, sonically as well as ideologically, to the days of acid and bell bottoms. There?s no attempt at innovation on this record at all ? that?s what gives it its distinct flavor, after all ? but there?s no mistaking the fact that the band?s nostalgic for an era long gone. - R. Paul Matthews

Actually... if you consume enough cannabis, it can be psychedelic. We are talking about eating several grams of quality hash, not smoking a joint or three. The experience is not fun and no normal user would ever repeat the experience if they tried it once. I could also argue that common OTC cough syrup is also psychedelic if you drink too much of it, but we still sell it without a prescription to any child that walks in the store. Large does side effects do not change the medicinal value of the product.

Just another spore in the wind.
