Psychic Ills
Psychic Ills
Hypnotic, elusive New York experimental rock band Psychic Ills took shape in 2003,
when they pressed their own 7" and started playing shows. They’ve remained ambiguous
and often hard to classify through the years as they’ve traversed a variety of musical
terrain and personnel changes. Recently, Tres Warren, Elizabeth Hart and co. have
emerged with a seemingly more streamlined and accessible approach to their original
blend of music as displayed on their record Hazed Dream for new label Sacred Bones
Records.

“Faced with a deluge of groove based psych, many listeners failed to notice Psychic
Ills peculiar idiosyncrasy, and they got subsumed. Now that all is quiet, or quieter, on
the kaleidoscopic rock front, it's easier to hear the radical economy that sets them apart.
While most freaked-out churners give in to the temptation to throw everything into the
cauldron and boil, Psychic Ills cherry-pick their ingredients and slow roast till golden... a
mirror in a desert gently turning in the breeze” – The Wire Magazine

Psychic Ills have been releasing assorted hazy slabs of vinyl since 2004, but most people
know these NYC transplants from their '06 proper debut LP Dins, a crashing storm of
noise and pop that bent shoegazer techniques through a perma-stoned, cult-like filter that
could burn holes through apartment walls. Following that came an extended period of
self-discovery through abstraction, with recorded documents that went further out, dug
way down, captured the band at practice and left us to sort it out for ourselves. Hazed
Dream marks a return to form, then, at least one of a band that's trying to write pop songs
in the three-to-four minute range with some degree of success. All of the excess is burned
off here like dust in votive candles strewn across the hardwood floor. Energy levels
never rise above a browned-out choogle, but that's alright, the Ills finding a niche for
themselves between Opal's Happy Nightmare Baby, Spacemen 3 demos, and the sunrise
that greets us each morning. This is a supremely burnt, incredibly cool album based
on repetitive concepts, blues riffage, and dark sunglasses, content to purr along while
the world races past. It'll make the mood juuuuuuust right wherever you are.” -- Doug
Mosurock, Dusted Magazine/Other Music.
Mariee Sioux
Following the release of her collaborative Bonnie & Mariee EP with Bonnie Prince Billy, Northern California's Mariee Sioux released her sophomore full-lengh Gift for the End. Recorded in the summer of 2011 at Placerville's Moonsoon Studios and Nevada City's Sun Dial studios, the new song-cycle breathes as easily and resonates as warmly as 2007's Faces in the Rocks but brims with audible shifts in ambiance and perspective. Impressionistic narratives are underscored by thatchwork guitar patterns that showcase Mariee's voice, an unadorned, naked instrument that rings clear and high above airy atmospherics and mellow percussion. Gift for the End is dream logic at play: a fluid procession of personal and natural imagery that moves from place to place and symbol to symbol but ultimately never loses its cohesive dimensions or emotional shape.
