The Holydrug Couple
The Holydrug Couple

Follakzoid and The Holydrug Couple are both psychedelic bands from Chile signed to Brooklyn label, Sacred Bones. This past January, the label released their new albums, II (Follakzoid) and Noctuary (The Holydrug Couple), and both can be streamed below. Follakzoid's album cuts psychedelia with a sort of stark goth rock, whereas The Holydrug Couple are more outward in their homages to the late '60s, mixing a Summer of Love jangle with Eastern melodies and Revolver rhythms.

The two bands are heading out on separate North American tours this year, but are crossing paths in NYC for shows together on March 20 at Death by Audio and March 21 at Mercury Lounge with La Big Vic. No advance tickets for the DBA show but tickets for the Merc show are on sale now.
