Friday, August 10th 2012: The Psyched

TONIGHT’S SHOW ($7):

  • Two-piece The Psyched make brash noisy garage with deep slap-back delayed rock and roll vocals.  This reminds us of Compulsive Gamblers mixed with The Misfits with some sixties psych-organ thrown into the mix, a dark minor-key mix of wails and crashes culminating in a rowdy din.  Listen here.

  • In Sultan Bathery‘s bio, they’re described as “a mix of neo-garage and lo-fi psychedelic rock.”  The Vicenza, Italy three-piece ride the line of playfulness and badassery.  Shades of Barrett-era Floyd, The Zombies and The Munsters theme song.  Listen here.

  • Long Island City husband/wife duo Ekra take bass, drums and two part vocals into new territory.  Forget that there’s just two of them.  It’s irrelevant.  They merge dream pop and post rock effortlessly, evoking Sonic Youth, Swirlies and Broken Social Scene all at once.  Listen here.

In addition to the audio bliss there will be visual euphoria.  B.A. Miale will be on hand to manipulate amazing video streams using a keytar.  We’re not exactly sure how that works, but we know it’s awesome.
