RIYL: Thrills, Pills and Pedal Steels
Label: Sacred Bones
Psychic Ills have been levitating over the streets of New York City long enough to figure out their perfect prescription. Â Over the course of four albums and a few lineup changes, The Ill ilk have journeyed through a great manyÂ psychedelicized avenues. Elated,Â sedated, and translated into auditory bliss, Psychic Ills are here to feed your head. Â If you have some Spacemen 3 records on your shelf, there’s just no rhyme or reason why Psychic Ills shouldn’t be sitting right next to them. Â Unless you order your records alphabetically.
Their fifth album (and third with the revered Sacred Bones Records), appears to be veering into cosmic country territory. Â Psychic Ills must be listening to the same Gram Parsons records that Beachwood Sparks got their hands on in the early 2000s. Â Pedal steels flow through the first two tracks like a crystal clear river through Holy Mountain. Â Whether you cover your head with a cowboy hat or a bandana laced with acid, come together for the psychedelic sounds of Psychic Ills.
Grab a copy of the record on ‘desert haze’ vinyl, limited to just 400. Â It’ll come with aÂ wax-sealedÂ alternate sleeve and some slick inserts as is custom with Sacred Bones limited product.
***Limited Edition Version: Edition of 400 hand-numbered copies on desert haze vinyl, comes with alternate screen-printed brown paper bag outer sleeve, inserts, wax sealed, and available by mail-order only. ONE PER PERSON LIMIT.***
