Ecstatic Vision is #MakingPhillyPsychAgain one tune at a time, releasing the second track from their newest record Raw Rock Fury, “Electric Step.”

The 9-plus minutes gives us more lo-fi psych-jam goodness, as the band’s classic growling vocals overtake the growing anxiety of each six-string swipe, cumulating into a final tremolo face-melter that is only made better by the out-of-nowhere saxophone.

Philly four piece Creepoid recently released the first song off their forthcoming self titled album, which you can listen to via Noisey. A floating-through-space jam entitled “Sunday,” Creepoid takes a slow still through the dark and mysterious, just as they did on some of the more ambient tracks off Horse Heaven. The track builds up sonically with the band’s dreamy mindset and the repeated line “I want to dream.” Creepoid will be released March 4th on No Idea Records, but you can get the record a little early at their record release show on 2/27 at Johnny Brenda’s. Get tickets to Creepoid’s that show with Far-Out Fangtooth and Ecstatic Vision here. Below, watch the video for “Golden String,” released on a split 7″ with Shores in 2012.
