Acid Mother Temple's founding guitarist, Makoto Kawabata, only has one gear: interstellar overdrive. The Japanese ensemble has released a staggering array of cosmic freak-outs, careening drastically through free jazz, Krautrock, and Seventies prog – often in one take. 2007's Crystal Rainbow arcs no exception, the best point of entry in recent memory. Forty-minute closer, "Electric Psilocybin Flashback," offers a one-way trip with electric Hendrix flairs and a soft, ambient landing. (Fri., 12:30am, Levitation tent)
