ABOUT PSYCHIC ILLS
The seekers in New York City’s Psychic Ills have spent more than a decade following their muse wherever it takes them. First gaining attention through their debut record Dins in 2006, they have released five studio albums and numerous EPs and singles that explore a variety of musical directions. The band has gone through several line-up changes with Tres Warren and Elizabeth Hart being the longest running members. They began working with Sacred Bones Records in 2011 with the release of Hazed Dream. One Track Mind followed two years later in 2013. In 2016 they released the sprawling double album Inner Journey Out, the culmination of an odyssey of three years of writing, traversing the psych-rock landscape they’ve carved throughout their career and taking inspired pilgrimages into country, blues, gospel, and jazz. After playing Mexico earlier in the year, Psychic Ills will again break from work on what is to become their next LP to return to Europe for this years Le Guess Who Festival In November.
Brooklyn-based psych-rock band, Heaven, announce their sophomore album, All Love is Blue, due out on March 2, 2018 via Little Cloud Records. The 10-track LP is produced by the band, engineered by Albert DiFiore (Caveman, Sinkane, Beck) mixed by Al Carlson (Zola Jesus, Widowspeak).
Heaven is Matt Sumrow (vocals and guitar), Mikey Jones (drums), Liz Lohse (keyboards), and Eric Altesleben (guitars). Sumrow and Jones created the band in the wake of touring and recording with artists such as DEAN and BRITTA, SWERVEDRIVER, AMBULANCE LTD, The COMAS, SNOWDEN, The BIG SLEEP and others.
A romantic clash between your Dad's long-lost favorite psych record and the soundtrack to a John Hughes film, Heaven ride a massive sonic wave in delivering their dear and dreamy tracks. In July of 2013, Heaven released their debut LP Telepathic Love on Goodnight Records. The live lineup came together on the touring of Telepathic Love with the addition of keyboardist Liz Lohse (X-Ray Eyeballs) and Eric Altesleben (Interpol) who have since become permanent members.
As 2018 sees the release of All Love Is Blue on Little Cloud Records, out of Portland, Oregon, subsequent tour dates for Heaven in support of the album will follow. Their new work is a quantum leap forward for the band, both artistically and sonically, making the protracted wait between albums a huge payoff.
