Rock Picks: Laser Background gets psychedelic at Neptunes

“Correct” is the impressively weird-yet-appealing new album by Laser Background, who play Wednesday at Neptunes in Raleigh. Hotline shares the bill.

Ever wondered what it might feel like to drop acid and then go to the circus? You can get a pretty fair aural approximation of that experience on “Correct” (Gravesend Recordings), the impressively weird-yet-appealing new album by Laser Background – working handle of Philadelphia’s Andy Molholt, who concocts a psychedelic carnival that seems to pulse and flow across the universe in eyeball-melting tones. Laser Background will play it live Wednesday at Neptunes, downstairs from Kings in Raleigh, on a bill with Hotline.

It’s an all-ages show, music starts at 9:45 p.m. and cover is $7. See kingsbarcade.com for details.
