If you're looking for really good drone/psychedelic music then San Francisco is obviously the place to be. It produced the likes of the Grateful Dead and now it houses Barn Owl. Their next album, Ancestral Star, will be released on November 1st through Thrill Jockey and it sounds epic. The band will be playing a few gigs in Europe in October including the Supersonic Festival in Birmingham on 24 October. Check out the video below for 'Light from the Mesa'. It's like walking through honey. Header image by Lisa McGee http://www.myspace.com/barnowlband
