See/Hear: The Daily Psychedelic Video blog

Since 2010, a team of self-described “psychedelic video aficionados” have posted a video a day on their aptly-named blog, The Daily Psychedelic Video. They write: “These videos can take you on very deep journeys, but only if you allow them the proper time and attention. Watching these videos when you’re randomly browsing the web in the middle of your working day is very different to watching them in your free time, relaxed, on a big screen, with a good set of speakers/earphones, and spliff in your hand.” They blog also offers an intellectual treatise on psychedelic aesthetics.

Here are a few of from their list of “Best Videos”:
