People of Portland, I beseech you: Do not miss Doug Tuttle tonight at The Know. For years, the New England longhair has been a bright light in the psychedelic underground, first as co-founder of the New Hampshire band Mmoss and more recently as a Boston-based solo artist. His three most recent albums—2014’s self-titled, 2016’s It Calls on Me, and 2017’s Peace Potato—are all rock-solid collections of pitch-perfect psych-pop that’s fuzzy, jangling, endlessly melodic, and just a little bit weird. You know how some psych bands have no tunes? And some pop bands try too hard to introduce psych elements into their sound? Tuttle strikes a perfect balance, over and over again. This is his first tour of the West Coast, and who knows when (or if) he’ll ever be back. I mean it when I say don’t miss him.
