-valis Pick of the Week

Hail Voyagers! As suggested last week in a comment, our new Pick of the Week is Psychic Ills! (Brooklyn. Again.)

Their new album, Hazed Dream, came out late last month on Sacred Bones. Although from a cursory overview the blogosphere seems rather split on the overall merits of the album. To these ears the arguments stating there's a saminess to the album bears a kernel of truth but there's also enough difference to warrant attention on its own.
They've found a vibe that worked for Hazed Dream and got locked in it. It works, for me. Try this:

You can listen to the archived stream here; or, hear it this Friday, on The Dead Man's Turn Me On, Dead Man show on Live365, where it's heard every Friday at noon eastern time, as well as Mr. Atavist's Sunrise Ocean Bender show, heard every Friday from 3 to 6am eastern, on WRIR in Richmond, VA.

although the new album doesn't reach the heights of their "January Rain" (but very few things in this universe do) it is their most cohesive record yet and a definite far out trip
