It’s been three years since the last full-length from Greek psych weirdos Acid Baby Jesus, but in case you needed reminding of their demeanor, the band provides a reminder in “Vegetable’s” opening line: “When I lost my mind, I put down in a hole.” The song only gets stranger: over monster-movie organ and guitars that lurch like Frankenstein’s monster, a tale of a brain turned into a vegetable and taking up residence in a human head. So think of that next time you sit down in front of a nice, hearty salad.
