Take the experimental psychedelic nature of King Gizzard, throw in some 70s funk jamming and a dash of Electric Light Orchestra. Sounds a bit erratic, yet it works on all levels. Lewis and the Strange Magics from Barcelona, Spain have released a really entertaining EP here of vibrant and exploratory psychedelic rock. The Ginger Sessions is loaded with hot jamming psychedelia for the soul, 70s funk and pop that will put a smile on your face and some well orchestrated exploration for those who love to get lost in the moment.

Standout Track(s)

Alcohol Pairing
Peach Cruiser by Coronado Brewing Company in sunny California. This 6.00% ABV IPA pours with a lite amber color and tastes of tropical fruit and peaches with a moderate peachy bitterness that lingers.
