We’re fast approaching Pickathon season here in Portland, which means you’ll start hearing about how the festival has long outgrown its rootsy vibe, and how you’re as likely to hear a plugged-in punk act out on Pendarvis Farm as an acoustic picker. One of the bands that helped establish that reputation is Meatbodies, a long-haired bunch of psych-rock ragers who absolutely obliterated the festival’s main stage in 2015. Earlier this year, the band—led by West Coast psych/garage guitar legend Chad Ubovich—released its second album, Alice, an excellent “loose concept” record about the end of the world. Packed with fantastical tales, serrated riffs, and sparkling melodies, Alice finds Meatbodies at their Black Sabbath-meets-the Beatles best. High praise? Indeed it is. If you’re skeptical, find someone who was at that Pickathon set a couple years ago. They’ll tell you… if their skull’s still intact. BEN SALMON
