You know when the psilocybin starts to run through your veins and your legs get wobbly and you can feel the laughter popping out of your brain like bubbles? Austin’s DAIISTAR has made a sound that feels just like that. Their music is an intoxicating blend of shoegaze and psychedelics and it makes me want to get weird in the best possible ways! Listening to the three tracks on their “Live Session” video we’re premiering today — “LMN BB LMN,” “TRACEMAKER,” and “PARALLEL” — I feel like every cell in my body is spinning and dancing in a kaleidoscope of rainbow lights, trying to get off planet earth and into some other, better, more excellent dimension. I must say, these are pretty damn good songs.
DAIISTAR’s debut VELVET REALITY LP comes out this year —stay tuned to their website for news about that — and make sure to check out their merch while you’re there. They’ve also got a new single coming out next month, “Purified,” that’s produced by Alex Maas of The Black Angels.
Right now, watch this stellar DAIISTAR live session below, and catch them live at Satellite in Houston, TX this Saturday!
