Psychic Ills
Psychic Ills
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.
The Love Club
The Love Club
BACK FROM A YEAR LONG NAP!
The Love Club is a collective of musicians revolving around Kyle Press (Impressionist/Ohbree), and Mitch Esparza (Humanshapes,ME, (((taco)))).
MaJaKa The Wanderer once said that they sound of rolling thunder. WXPN's John Vettese has described them as sounding like Magnolia Electric Company fronted by James Chance. The Philadelphia Deli Blog said they sound like the whole Pulp Fiction Soundtrack condensed into a thirty minute set.
Previous line ups of the band have featured members of local acts: Far Out Fangtooth, Loose Tooth, The Morelings, Space Whale Orchestra, Creepoid, and Jesus Christ Goddamnit, as well as several others. This is their sixth Rebirth since their original formation in 2007. The band has been in hibernation since their previous guitar player was stationed in South Korea, and the other members sought opportunity to expand their other projects. If they were a mythical creature they would probably be a Phoenix that plays saxophone through a series of fuzz pedals.
Groovy Movies
Groovy Movies
Groovy Movies is the brainchild of Nick Carlisi, former bass/piano/organ/rhythm guitar/harmonica/tambourine player for The Tough Shits. After leaving the band for being ostracized for not wearing shoes in the van and talking too much in between every single song at shows, he decided to start his own project where he could embrace his love of/obsession with harmony laden psychedelic sunshine pop and not be pressured into wearing shoes in the van.

The self titled debut record was recorded at 3 different studios in 3 different cities: Philadelphia, Atlanta and Los Angeles. Long story. It was a weird year.

In the studio, he harmonizes with himself and plays all of the instruments that he can and gets his friends to play what he can't or is too tired to play. Live, he sings, bounces between guitar and piano and gets his friends to harmonize with and play everything else, because he can only sing one part and play one instrument at a time. And because it’s fun to play with your friends.

He feels weird about referring to himself in the third person and only does so when writing bios.

After a self release on cassette, Groovy Movies will see a proper vinyl release via Hidden Volume Records out of Baltimore. Release date TBA.
