Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats

The early history of this strange band with the wonderfully hippy-esque name is shrouded in some mystery, as apparently there is some doubt as to whether Uncle Acid's henchmen (or were they henchwomen?), "Kat" and "Red", ever even existed. Regardless, the Uncle (now going by Kevin Starr) has carved a nice niche for himself, blending plenty of 60's and 70's influences (this is one of the most analog bands you'll hear) with early proto-doom to great effect. The debut, 2010's Volume 1, is their most 60's-influenced album, with Starr's unique, whiny, Lennon-esque vocals inducing a demented Beatles vibe (kind of like a lo-fi version of Bigelf), while on the later efforts they've honed their quite original brand of laid-back, hazy, psychedelic, horror-tinged stoner/occult/doom. These guys probably aren't destined for superstardom, but Starr's vision is quite unique and the band's music is interesting, strangely catchy and spooky in all the right ways.
