Psychic Ills' Hazed Dream: Exclusive Album Stream

Hear the new album on Sacred Bones from the dark New York duo featuring their unique fuzzy psych sounds

New York-based psych nerds Psychic Ills are back to enthrall us with their new album 'Hazed Dream', this October. Out on Sacred Bones (Zola Jesus, Effi Briest etcetera), the album was recorded live to tape by Mitch Rakin (Gang Gang Dance, Black Dice... etcetera) featuring their characteristicly dark and ambient vibes. The duo's eerie organs, fuzzy guitar riffs and harmonica solos across the new LP drew us to ask the pair about their favourite sounds and labels alongside an exclusive album stream for Dazed...
