“Mushroom have long been knights traversing the plains and mountains of psychedelic rock.”
(The Wire)

MUSHROOM, a musicians’ collective based in the San Francisco Bay area, return with their first album in three years, NAKED, STONED, & STABBED, to be released via 4 Zero Records/Royal Potato Family. A new phase for Mushroom, the project was conceived as a cross-continental Cinema Verite travelogue of time and space. Blending acoustic ambience with eastern and western hemispheres, its music floats on an ethereal blanket of sitar, violin, pump organ, celesta, vibraharp, dulcimer and flutophone, while African, Latin and Indian percussion replace a conventional drum set. Enigmatic song titles include “Celebration At Big Sur (The Sound Of The Gulls Outside Of Room 124),” “Though You’re Where You Want To Be, You’re Not Where You Belong,” “Tariq Ali” and the only outside composition, a remake of the Syd Barrett/Kevin Ayers’ collaboration, “Singing A Song In The Morning.”
