Forget the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, fondues, soufflés, and bonbons. If you’re planning to go to France, go for its burgeoning music scene, particularly in the psychedelic spheres. One band at the forefront of the country’s musical renaissance is Bootchy Temple, who in the autumn released their new album, Glimpses, is on Howlin’ Banana Records.

They are the descendants of fellow French psych-rock duo The Limiñanas with splashes of Wooden Shjips and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. In other words, they are crafting songs that are immensely hazy and delirious, such as on “Lady Sunshine” and “Nail’s Ward”.  Martinez, Paul, Sam, Luc, Lucas, and Greg are also heavily influenced by The Doors, where they can make psychedelic sound like a romantic breeze, as revealed on “The Man With The Cane”. Pretty soon, they won’t be imitating anyone, but rather others will be trying to replicate their groovy and trippy sound.
