Last week we premiered Better Than Anything, the high-energy new video from Italy’s Nothing For Breakfast. An explosion of colour and charisma, it’s a jam that would fit warmly into Australia’s flourishing psych-pop scene.
After shooting the shit with lead singer Samuele for a hot minute, we realised he had another thing in common with a host of home-grown psych rockers – a love for weed. Naturally, we asked him to put together a list of his favourite stoner albums.
How could we not?
Looking for a sweet record to jam out on? Presenting Nothing For Breakfast’s list of the 5 best albums to smoke weed to.
The Beatles – Revolver
It gets absolutely insane when you think this was 1966. It’s all about the colours they got in that record, production and creativity-wise. And we know that they were smoking more than ever at that time. Nice stories from space.
MGMT – Congratulations
This record is totally out of anyone’s mind. Give it a chance and you’ll understand the awesome songwriting, while the overall mood created in there is lovely and creepy. You do not wanna miss this trip.
Tame Impala – Lonerism
Who else wants to be Kevin Parker producing that record outdoor in front of the ocean? We’re definitely in. You can definitely smell the water and feel the breeze on the riff of Mind Mischief.
Of Montreal – Hissing Fauna, are you the Destroyer?
Got the awesome chance to meet Kevin Barnes after a show and we’ve been talking about that great record. The funny thing is that we didn’t smoke together.
Flaming Lips – Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots
It’s like floating on a vitamin-cloud, surrounded by an extra deep sound of joy and happiness. Also, the robots are pink. Amazing.
