Watch Out For Psychic Ills’ ‘Mirror Eye’

posted by on October 20 at 11:48 AM

Good news for people who like excellent new psychedelia: The Social Registry label just announced that Brooklyn’s Psychic Ills will release their next album, Mirror Eye, January 20. You can preview some songs from it on the band’s MySpace.

Psychic Ill’s Dins (2006) is one of the best rock albums of recent years. Without being blatant about it, they update the expansive, heat-mirage psychedelia of Texan ’60s legends Thirteenth Floor Elevators and the Red Krayola. “What made Dins revelatory,” I wrote in another publication, “was its adept alternation between disorienting atmospheric meandering and thrusting rock motion.”

From the few tracks I’ve sampled so far, Mirror Eye promises to be sublime, too.

Now enjoy some footage from last year’s PI show at the Funhouse.
