It’s been in style to dress in the garb of past eras for a while now. Sure, media attention might be paid to different fashions one at a time (Get the Betty Draper look – this Spring it’s all about floral circle skirts! ), but in reality one could pull together an outfit from any of the past four or five decades and still look hip. Or hipster.

In music though, we seem to be having a flashback to one specific decade. One could argue that the sound of the 1990s have had a resurgence with bands like Yuck and The Walkmen, but I’m going to say that I’ve been hearing more flower children out there than any others. I’m talking about the 1960s. Whether because of production value, a catchy hook, or psychedelic guitar jam breaks, every one of the bands below I could imagine at Woodstock, The Original.

Anyone have a field I can rent?
