Psychic Ills biography
Psychic Ills are a New York based Space Rock group formed in 2003 by Tom Gluibizzi and Tres Warren. As a duo they released the limited LPs Mental Violence I in 2004 and Mental Violence II in 2005. Both recordings will be later reissued as Early Violence in 2006. Elizabeth Hart and Brian Tamborello later joined the group and as a quartet they released their first full length album called Dins.

Their sound can be seen as a combination of the drones of Shoegazer bands, the psychedelic aspect of 80's and 90's Neo Psychedelic bands, the energetic playing of Punk bands and ambient textures reminiscent to Ambient and Electronic artists as well as many other genres with the same flavor. If you're a fan of bands like My Bloody Valentine, Spacemen 3, Sonic Youth and Bardo Pond and drug-influenced genres then Psychic Ills won't be out of place in your collection.

Review by Marty McFly

2 stars Oh no, just no. This is one of the worse disappointments of this year. Don't take me bad, psych sound is a feat you cannot deny to admit about Psychic Ills, but it is a very specific kind - hypnotical. Which can induce sleep, headache, boredom, but rarely something that could be described as a pleasant emotion. Mumbled vocals (the kind of echoing microphone), subtle variations of what serves as a melody here. There is perfectly exampled something like "sound of nothing". The music goes nowhere, it simply sits on a butt and looks arounds, cluelessly. No offense to musicians involved, but this is way out of line.

Psychic Ills Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Eetu Pellonpaa
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars This album combines abstract sound walls built up from tribal instruments, electronic sounds and echo processions, and then quite repetitive psych rock passages. I really enjoyed the ambient like sound realms which this band produced, but the rock elements here weren't very excellent, so though I first had quite positive impressions from this record, the later part of the album with two over eight minutes longs of rock tracks lacking interesting aspects or musical content lowered my enthusiasm towards it. Minimalistic approach and repetition can be enjoyable, if the elements which build up the trance are pleasant, but the end result here was in my opinion quite bland. Also, due low recording levels and reverbs I was unable to comprehend anything from the singing, but maybe it was not very important anyway. If you're a fan of the style of this stuff, check this band out as you might like them more than me.
Thanks to chamberry for the artist addition. and to Rivertree for the last updates
