Sky Picnic is a psychedelic rock band residing in Brooklyn, New York. Their music surrounds the listener in a mystical, fairy tale like world of psychedelia, that treads the line between flowery and eerie. The band also featured on the Fruits De Mer albums 'Keep Off The Grass' and 'Sorrow's Children'.
'Synesthesia' Sky Picnic's debut, an EP released in 2008, takes us back to where it all began.
These 5 songs range from the raga rock of "Tea Break" to the five-part song suite epic "Sequence IV".
The EP is highlighted by the spacey instrumental "Moons of Jupiter", which is still part of the band's current stage show.
Sitars, fuzz bass, wah-wahs, and phasers dominate the proceedings, giving it a very classic 60's psych and prog feel.
