The British band Syd Arthur sounds like it's been zapped in from another era, one where psychedelic shadings merged with classic head-tripping jams.

They took their name from Pink Floyd's Syd Barrett (who was fried before the band got around around to recording its masterpiece 'The Dark Side of the Moon') and the Kinks album 'Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire).'

Before they go on tour, Syd Arthur stopped by chat with us and to play a few songs. You can watch the exclusive video performance of 'Hometown Blues' above.
