Jonathan Psychedelic folk is hard to do and almost impossible to do well. You need a great vocalist, sharp lyrics, cosmic rock structure and a lot of luck and skill. Medicine Boy has all of the above in spades. This is an outstanding psychedelic band with a female vocalist, Lucy Krueger, to die for. This is heart melting, not mind melting, psychedelica. Outstanding music, which I highly recommend. Favorite track: The Strange In Me.

Track Name: Open Sea
Lost my mind in the open sea

Found you there looking back at me

All my troubles melted in your hands


Followed you down to see where you go

What do you do and who do you know

Followed you through the walls and into the floor


In my heart I’ve tried for so long

To keep it together, keep it all strong

But sometimes there’s always something besides the inside


You drew a cross on my head

Told me not to walk but to run instead

You told me that I’d know when the feeling drops


Feeling high

Feeling low

Moving fast

Going slow

Feeling better

Feeling quick

Change in the weather

Feeling sick


You say you’re tired of being alone, so you just make up your mind

But now your mind is made up, you just want to be alone all the time

I’ve been looking for you, creature since God only knows when


But all that I found was a trail of broken women and men
Track Name: Gimme Ya Love
I’ve been running on moonbeams ,baby for twenty-one days

Dripping batwing oil and firefly grease and dirt along the way

I’ve been looking for someplace, honey

Somewhere to lay me down

You can give me a crack in the wall or a little hole in the ground


But gimme ya love

Gimme ya love

Gimme ya love ‘cause it’s the only thing I know how to…


For now I sleep, oh Lord but when I wake

I’ll put a hundred flowers on your grave, poison in your wedding cake

So gimme your love now, girl-child

Gimme your medicine boy

I’ll show you how to mend, I’ll teach you how to destroy


Gimme ya love

Gimme ya love

Gimme ya love ‘cause it’s the only thing I know how to use


Gimme ya love

Gimme ya love

Gimme ya love ‘cause it’s the only thing I know how to lose
Track Name: The Strange In Me
I have caged you
You have caged me
But baby if you cage me
Don’t you know you’ve got to feed me

Make these feathers shine
Turn water into wine
And we’ll drink away the time
As we ignore the signs

Raised up soft in the midst of a hurricane
Sweep the pieces of a light that would never break

You have saved me
To love is to be free
I am tested endlessly
But I won’t save you
I am jealous and unkind and I think of you as mine
So I won’t save you
I have caged you betrayed you and caged you and caged you

Make these feathers shine
Turn water into wine
And we’ll drink away the time
As we ignore the signs

Raised up soft in the midst of a hurricane
Sweep the pieces of a light that would never break
Pull the covers let the darkness take your space
Love the quiet let the silence keep it safe


I would have done anything for you

Bring you a devil make it sing for you

But I’ll rap you up in rubber and set fire to you

‘Cause that’s the only thing that I know how to do

You have changed me
Re-arranged me
With all that you have changed
You set free the strange in me strange in me strange in me

Make these feathers shine
Turn water into wine
And we’ll drink away the time
As we ignore the signs

Raised up soft in the midst of a hurricane
Sweep the pieces of a light that would never break
Pull the covers let the darkness take your place
Love the quiet let the silence keep it safe
Keep it safe
Track Name: Together
My head is aching like a river bed shaking and the foundations breaking to let go

‘Cause I’ve been running with the water now I’m coming round your corner and
the only thing I want is to not know where I’m going

I had a vision that the only thing I’m missing was three colours and a piece of string

‘Cause a man I met once, he was dancing with the sun, he said ‘with those you sure could make anything – you just tie ‘em together

I took a bite of the highway lights, I lit the feeling down in my stomach

‘Cause everything I knew, the black and the blue, from the pits right up to the summit – I just tie ‘em together


Out of the walls and into the ceiling

A colour-copy Jesus a different meaning

Life on mars, big red cars

Coming too close, going too far

Over the hills and under the sheets

Get loud keep still out on the streets

Under the rubble getting into trouble

From the sky to the sea

You and me

I tie it all together


Keep your little soul on fire

Keep it crooked, wrapped in wire
Track Name: More Knives
My lungs are closing in,

I need more calm to fill it with

A different melody

A different song to fill it with

My head is caving in

I need more space to fill it with

A different sense of time

A different place to fill it with


I feel I’m getting closer to the end

But I don’t want to go

Oh no not yet


When everything’s on fire

I need new hands to feel it with

When everyone’s a liar

A whole new plan to deal with

I’ve lost track of my health

I need new eyes to see it with

Some new found sense of self

A new mind to free it with


I’m feeling that I just let myself go

But I don’t want to be stuck here

All alone


In between all the lives I’ve lived

a line traces all that I give

And everything that I’ve taken away

But nothing’s truer that to live just for today

Or so they say


In the belly of the beast

I need more light to fill it with

I look on as they feast

Give me more knives

To kill them with
Track Name: Last Light
You are the last light
Bringing the night quiet
Letting the day down as soft as you can

Mine is a wild breath
A muddied and torn dress
Holding it in from the flames for as long as I can

You don’t know how to hold me ‘cause I’m kicking the walls
You’re giving all you’ve got and I keep asking for more
You feel like you should kiss me but I’m gnashing my teeth
You fear that you will miss me but you beg and you pray for release

Yours is a cool breeze
With eyes like the green sea
Soft as the clouds that I feel whenever you breathe

Mine is a curved line
It knots with the minds eye
As steady as man’s love for the things he can’t see

I don’t know how to see you when your head’s in the sky
You don’t know how to trust me when I say that I try
I lie inside this madness ‘cause I know what I’ve found
I’ve found that I am free, my love, keep me bound

A heart that needs to feel you hold it down
Once filled with wings now heading for the ground
