When it comes to following the beat of their own drum, New York’s Psychic Ills have exemplified the phrase since their beginnings in 2003. Initially spawned from electronic-centered home recording experiments, they progressed into all-night full-band exploration in a neighborhood where noise wasn’t a problem. They soon after evolved into a live band seemingly at home within the extended jam, exploring a variety of musical terrain. The early years saw several releases for Social Registry, tons of time on the road, and collaborations with artists as diverse as Gibby Haynes
(Butthole Surfers) and Sonic Boom (Spacemen Three/ Spectrum). In 2011, their first effort for Sacred Bones, Hazed Dream traded in the synthesizer space-outs and raga rumbles, and delivered a record of sunburned psych pop, awash in warm tones and blues damaged songwriting. In 2012 they did two full US tours including a stop at Austin Psych Fest, and had their first trip to China. In August of 2012 they released the song “Take Me With You”as a split 7” with Moon Duo. They recorded One Track Mind, their fourth full length, this fall. The album features collaborations with and some production by Neil Michael Hagerty of Royal Trux/The Howling Hex and features artwork by former 13th Floor Elevators songwriter and artist Powell St. John. There will also be a limited value add covers 7” available on initial orders, containing the Ills’takes on The Godz’ “Radar Eyes”and private press psych pop obscurity Cosmic Michaels’ “Cosmic Michael Theme”. One Track Mind is perhaps the most straight-forward rock record the Ills have ever made.

RHYTON (Thrill Jockey, Mem. D. Charles Speer and the Helix, No Neck Blues Band & Psychic Ills)
+ Guests, TBA
Rhyton is an experimental/improv/psych trio based in Brooklyn that features Dave Shuford (D. Charles Speer and the Helix, No Neck Blues Band), Jimy SeiTang (Psychic Ills) and Spencer Herbst (Messages, Matta Llama). They are a band with an organic genesis, born from late night rap sessions at a local Brooklyn watering hole. Heads of certain vibe gathered together to tap into the underlying flux form of transportational music.
“And maybe that’s what makes Rhyton’s album so enjoyable, the sense that old wine can — in the right distorted, rock-amplified hands — still get you raging drunk.” - Dusted Magazine

Psychic Ills is an experimental rock/psychedelic rock band from New York, USA. The current line-up consists of Tres Warren(guitar, vocals), Elizabeth Hart(bass), Dan Wise(guitar) , Brandon Davis (keyboard) and Chris Millstein (drums). Their first full length album, Dins, was released in early 2006 with the painting, “Three Hairs and Shadow” by German Fluxus artist Wolf Vostell as the cover art.
The Village Voice named them Best Psych Rock Band in their 2006 Best of NYC issue.
In early 2008 they performed in Marfa, Texas for the opening of the Hello Meth Lab In The Sun art installation, and at the Contemporary Art Museum in Bordeaux France for the IAO festival. In 2009 they released Mirror Eye and toured the US with Butthole Surfers.
For 2011’s Hazed Dream, the band moved to Sacred Bones and opted for a more streamlined, accessible approach.
Members of Psychic Ills have been involved in various other projects. Elizabeth Hart plays bass with Effi Briest and performs with the improvisational dance and music ensemble Skint. Tres Warren collaborates with visual artist Taketo Shimada as Messages and with Drew McDowall of Coil as Compound Eye. Former drummer Brian Tamborello participated in the Boredoms Boadrum projects and played drums on Mike Wexler’s record Sun Wheel.
From Get Bent;
“As the first notes of this album began to play, my face automatically contorted in pleasure. It probably wasn’t very pretty, but I really don’t care. Every part of my body began to bop about in its awkward little way, and I began to jam. If King Khan and the Black Lips and Ty Segall somehow were able to conceive a musical baby, this would most assuredly be it. Night Beats manage to be a soulful and psychedelic yet surfy brand of garage rock. These kids are based from Seattle now, but 2/3 of the band originally hails from Texas. It’s easy to pick up the 13th Floor Elevators references, along with several other Texan psych staples. It was hard for me to pick just one offering for you, dear listeners, because every song on the album highlighted another facet of their insane talent. Night Beats supplied a psychedelic odyssey that clocked in at 7:12, and then offset it with several bangers under the 3:00 mark. Standouts include “Puppet On A String”, “Dial 666”, “The Other Side”, and “Halucinojenny.” Enjoy the melty, fuzzy, face-contorting goodness”
