Psychic Ills is the latest, greatest post-Velvet Underground, post-Spacemen 3, stoned-to-the-bone, psych phenomena from The Social Registry. They finished a tour opening for labelmates Blood on the Wall last month, gearing up for the release of their debut full length, Dins on February 7th. Last year saw the release of their first 7" and a recent 12" featuring a remix by former Spaceman, Sonic Boom.
Recorded by Charles Burst, who has worked with bands such as Black Dice and Gang Gang Dance, the Ills alchemize wailing analogue drone, tight kraut rhythms, and zonked out of the atmosphere vocals to the max. Combining all the good shit into a murky brew that goes down easy for you syrup-heads. Lick my decals off, baby.
You can hear a couple other tracks from their upcoming LP over at the always wonderful 20 Jazz Funk Greats and Daughters of Invention.
