The second album from Roky Erickson and co. saw their songs get longer and more expansive. Stripping away a lot of the garage rock influence and adding plenty of 60s folk rock sounds, the sound is more psychedelic, hypnotic and woozier. It remains hugely influential, with Primal Scream covering the opener 'Slip Inside The House' and the Levitation festival in Texas being named after it. Long live the 13th Floor Elevators!

'Easter Everywhere' is a breathtaking psychedelic experience. The music is less "garage" than the first Elevators album, which I enjoy quite a bit, and it's not as hard to get into in my opinion. The electric jug is pushed back in the mix a little bit too, which was a good move. The style of the music takes you back to a different time, and the quality at times does sound like it was recorded in a small room with inexpensive equipment, but the quality of the musicianship only adds to the appeal of sounding nostalgic and genuine.
