Liverpool Psych Fest and Oui Love team up for a playlist highlighting some of the best acts currently making a splash in the French psych scene

This weekend sees the return of Liverpool Psych Fest to the city's Baltic Triangle, with the likes of Songhoy Blues, GNOD, The Black Angels, Jane Weaver, WITCH, Loop and plenty more all locked in to play across the weekend.

This year's festival also features a healthy contingent of music from France, and to celebrate that and shine a light on some of the acts travelling over from across the channel, the team behind Liverpool Psych Fest have put together a playlist of music from acts playing this year, as well as French artists from the loosely defined psych scene. You can check out the playlist just below and read some more words on it from Liverpool Psych Fest below that.

"For several years now Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia has been championing the best in mind-melting sounds from across the channel. Ahead of this year's event, a playlist has been put together in collaboration with Oui Love – a website and club night devoted to music made in France - celebrating the best in contemporary French psych.

"It features acts appearing this year, like Aquaserge, Flavien Berger, Acid Arab and Magnetix, as well as other adventurous delights including the bewitching Halo Maud, La Terre Tremble!!!'s splintered grooves, fried guitar pop from Marietta and the electro-shoegaze of Dead Sea. The latter two will also be appearing with Aquaserge at the Oui Love night at Birthdays in London on September 21."
