Psychic Ills
Psychic Ills
Hypnotic, elusive New York experimental rock band Psychic Ills took shape in 2003, when they pressed their own 7" and started playing shows. They've remained ambiguous
and often hard to classify through the years as they've traversed a variety of musical terrain and personnel changes. Recently, Tres Warren, Elizabeth Hart and co. have
emerged with a seemingly more streamlined and accessible approach to their original blend of music as displayed on their record Hazed Dream for new label Sacred Bones Records.
Ghost Box Orchestra
Ghost Box Orchestra
"The Only Light On is a sumptuously multilayered affair for the senses; seven tracks of whisper-to-roar delicacy and power that, taken together, make for a spectral stretch of music that sounds far greater than the sum of its individual parts."
- Jonathan Perry, The Boston Globe

"The songs are layered, noisy but quiet, undulating, ethereal. Most importantly, though, they rock! They really take you for a ride. Especially if you experience them through headphones."
- Andrea Shea, wbur.org

"Ghost Box Orchestra move through musical ideas together like a reptilian rock monster slithering around and rising and pouncing."
- Cheap Thrills Boston

"(Ghost Box Orchestra) sound as if Ennio Morricone and Dick Dale went driving through the desert listening to Zeppelin and Floyd."
- anonymous SXSW 2010 attendee

"Ghost Box Orchestra opens the party with a terrific set. They are like Sonic Youth at times, but if you listen hard, and I do, you hear lots of other stuff going on, from Leslie West type runs ala "Theme From An Imaginary Western" to psyche, noise, surf, and fado. A really fantastic Boston band to watch for."
- The Noise, Eric Baylies
