Foregoing the Pacific Northwests’ love affair with all things garage rock, Portland, Oregon band King Black Acid music chiefly consists of spacey, neo-psychedelic extended jams.
Originally begun by, leader and guitarist, Daniel Riddle as a solo home taping project. He quickly moved beyond that as he added keyboardist Melinda Dicillo, guitarist Roger Campos, bassist Nathan Jorg, drummer Scott Adamo and percussionist Joe Trump to the mix.
The groups first album Womb Star Sessions melds elements of the Red Crayola, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, the Doors, and My Bloody Valentine.
Their second album Sunlit offers the listener a dreamer sound, but the three tracks on the album are significantly longer than the tracks on Womb Star Sessions , ranging in length from 18 to 22 minutes.
