Psychic Ills
Psychic Ills
Hypnotic, elusive New York City experimental rock band Psychic Ills were formed in 2003 by Tom Gluibizzi (guitar/keyboards) and Tres Warren (vocals). The band issued two limited-run vinyl recordings (Mental Violence I in 2004 and Mental Violence II in 2005), both of which Social Registry reissued together as Early Violence, adding two extra songs. Following Mental Violence I, the duo was joined by Elizabeth Hart (bass) and Brian Tamborello (drums). Psychic Ills, who have opened for the equally psychedelic Warlocks, released their first proper full-length, Dins, in February 2006. The largely improvised Mirror Eye arrived in 2009. For 2011's Hazed Dream, the band moved to Sacred Bones and opted for a more streamlined, accessible approach. 2013's One Track Mind continued on into even more accessible territory, with production and guest vocals from Royal Trux's Neil Michael Hagerty. Brent Cordero, who had played keyboards with Psychic Ills on tour, became part of their studio crew for the sessions that produced the group's fifth album, 2016's Inner Journey Out. The album also featured a guest appearance from Hope Sandoval of Mazzy Star, who contributed vocals to the song "I Don't Mind."

Drunken Palms
Drunken Palms
Necessity drives people. When Katelyn Mundal and Mac Pogue’s former project dissolved seven days before a show, they needed a new band. With the few songs burning a hole in her back pocket and a few reconfigured oldies, Drunken Palms was born. Their dark take on post-punk draws on the hooks of New Order, the abrasive clamor of early PJ Harvey and an obsession with feedback drones. Since their noisy, scrappy early shows, the duo has added Alex Hebler, of Portland’s Golden Hour, on guitar duties. They are currently scheduled to release new recordings sometime, when they feel like it.
