The WILD WILD WETS - "14th Floor"

The new french label BIG TOMATO, from Bordeaux, recently released "14th Floor", the amazing debut full length of San Diego, CA, new psychedelic surfers The WILD WILD WETS.

The band includes Mike Turi - Vocals / Synth; Taejon Romanik - Guitar; Yegor Mackey - Bass; Marco Piro - Drums + John Kelley, the projectionist, who takes care of all the visuals effects. The word has it that these shows have been compared to Jefferson Airplane 1966/67 when their music incorporated Jerry Abram's Headlights visual art performances.

WWWets' songs are drenched in reverb and  delay and find their inspiration in 60's garage rock,  surf, kraut, and psychedelia. And if the album's title is a obvious nod to the 13th Floor Elevator,  one can also feel the influence of Spacemen 3 or the Velvet underground

The wild wild wets are organically blending  together  old and  new sounds  in one big sonic maelstrom to  create  something  authentic and perfectly original and fresh. They take the listener to a cosmic roller-coaster ride through his brain and leave his mind panting for more.... The result, at the end of the trip, is the album "14th Floor".

Watch the Wild Wild Wets perform a stripped down version of the title track of their latest album. 

And the electric version of the same track:
