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.
Swear And Shake
The New York band Swear And Shake roll into town tonight at the TLA opening for G. Love & Special Sauce. The show is sold out but if you’re going, be sure to get their early to see the New York four piece. If you’re a fan of the Lumineers-Avett Brothers musical axis you’ll dig this band; banjos are played. Below, download “These White Walls” from the band’s debut album, Maple Ridge.
