The secret behind Psychic Ills’ captivating psych rock is economy of motion: Whether they’re playing a tune with a strong backbeat or a low-key blues number with a solitary organ bleat, a few guitar splinks, and vocalist-guitarist Tres Warren’s Lou Reed-like crooning, they almost always underplay in a way that is dangerously seductive. While other psych-rock bands depend on drones and others on oceans of reverb, Psychic Ills touts an organic high, one that they pass along to you. With Night Beats and Secret Mountains.
