Hazed Dreams Make Me Psychically Ill
Psychic Ills have developed a suitable hazy release on Sacred Bones called - wait for it - Hazed Dream. The New Yorkers are tripping further and further out on the light fantastic, picking up static and foreign signals that will fry your supply as you get high on said supply. Tres Warren sounds half-asleep, which is perfect for these REM dream patterns.
The man’s own explanation says as much as a dozen press releases could, even if he says relatively little: “Some developments in our lives led to new approaches. The music came out the old fashioned way… a way that had been avoided for a while. It was about putting some words to some chords and keeping it simple. Getting back to something. Feeling a feeling. Shaking out the NY brain boil. Movin’ away from some old bad vibes, by creating some new good ones. Dreaming out the bad. Takin’ it easy on ourselves, and those around us. This album lives in a sunny place. A half memory. A hazed dream.”
Hazed Dream can be grabbed here. If you hurry you can get a hand-numbered limited edition vinyl release that includes hand-silk-screened wrap-around sleeve, insert and wax seal.
