New York experimental rock band Psychic Ills headline Johnny Brenda’s tonight. The psychedelic-infused outfit recalls the distorted and distressed, laidback sound of early Kurt Vile with lo-fi vocals and hypnotic arrangements that seem on the verge of exploding. Psychic Ills will be releasing One Track Mind on February 19th via Sacred Bones Records, following up 2011′s Hazed Dream. Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with Nothing and Mike Bruno & The Black Magic Family Band can be found here. Stream “Might Take A While” from the upcoming record below.

Last week Billboard premiered Motion City Soundtrack’s new track “Severance,” which will be on the group’s two-track 7″ vinyl, scheduled for release November 6th. This limited-edition 7″ is part of the group’s Making Moves 7″ series in partnership with Drexel University’s Mad Dragon Records; the series has already featured artists like Brick + Mortar and The Skies Revolt. Motion City Soundtrack will be playing at Theatre of the Living Arts next Sunday, November 4th with I Was Totally Destroying It, Jukebox the Ghost and Now, Now. Tickets for that show are available here. You can stream “Severance” here.
