Let's Get High / One Last Chance Cover art

On March 17, 2017 psych / garage / punksters The Neighbourhood Strange unleashed upon the world their second single (in both 7 inch vinyl and CD formats). Side one is “Let’s Get High,” a jangly hip garage psych song with trippy organ about enjoying some live music. On the flip side “One Last Chance” slows things down and takes us into Lou Reed wild side territory and West Coast psych. The Neighbourhood Strange have been playing hundreds of gigs since their last single, most notably opening for Carlton Melton. They have many more gigs lined up for 2017 and finally an album they expect to released by the end of this year. These little tidbits from two singles are not quite enough to satisfy our psych appetites.
