While many people associate psychedelic music with the 1960s, there have been other bands from outside this era to play this specific brand of music. Neo psychedelia is one of the more popular revival genres of music. Though many of the neo psychedelia bands take elements from their psychedelic forefathers and blend elements of folk rock and acid rock to help bring back what's known as psychedelic music. Neo psychedelia also fuses elements of heavy metal and progressive rock in its sound, which is demonstrated by some of the best neo psychedelic bands. 

So, what are the best neo-psychedelia bands? If the criteria says that these bands need to be part of the latest wave of psychedelic music, it has to include bands like the Flaming Lips, Tame Impala, the Black Angels and Brian Jonestown Massacre. These bands are closely associated with neo psychedelia and are also known as some of the best psychedelic rock bands. Neo psychedelic bands incorporate heavy, spacey guitars that are as trippy as the sound would suggest. These bands remain popular as alternative rock bands, prog rock bands and of course, psychedelic rock bands.

That said, it's up to you to decide what are the best neo-psychedelia bands. If you notice that your favorite neo psychedelia band isn't on this list, feel free too add them. Remember, you're voting for the best neo-psychedelia band, not the most popular neo-psychedelic band. This list answers the questions "who are the best neo-psychedelia bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest neo-psychedelia musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular neo-psychedelia bands that you might've heard of.
