Vice's Noisey
is calling out Arizona psych in a big way right now. To quote their most recent article, which features an interview with The Myrrors' Nik Rayne:

Arizona seems to have a particular quality that creates inspired rock bands with slightly fried edges or more, whether it’s long-running stalwarts like the Meat Puppets or underground psych legends like the Black Sun Ensemble. Call it the harsh environment—or the fact that it’s better to practice inside away from the heat and dust, even while feeling it through the walls.
The interview goes on to explore about a decade of Myrrors music, including Arizona influences like Sun City Girls, though Rayne explains the desert itself often acts as the largest influence and tie to their home state.
I think the strongest link we might have as far as environment is just being in the desert, being able to draw out some certain aspects of music that—when you're playing music in this vein, it becomes emphasized more strongly. There's a space here in the desert.
You can check out more on the making of and meaning behind the name of their new album, Entranced Earth, along with seven songs from the new album on Noisey now. The Myrrors' Entranced Earth will be released on Beyond Beyond is Beyond on May 27.
