Psychic Ills @ Bowery Ballroom, 2/7/2013
Psychic Ills

With a sun-like image flickering from a projector behind them, the band members exuded a mystical, subterranean quality. The crowd nodded gently, not wanting to disturb the band's unwavering devotion to slow-motion desert-rock. There's a sense of openness at work in the best Psychic Ills songs--the same type of magical vistas explored in road movies like Two-Lane Blacktop or The Brown Bunny. Sure, a lot of their songs look the same on the surface, but so do most highways. - [CMJ]
Bluesy psych-rock combo Psychic Ills celebrated the impending release of their new One Track Mind album with a show at Bowery Ballroom on Thursday (2/7) and pictures of their set are in this post. Our photographer, who was coming from the Wayne Kramer show at Bowery Electric earlier that night, missed openers Prince Rupert's Drops and White Hills. Did you catch their sets? How were they?

You can stream One Track Mind over at SPIN right now. As mentioned, Psychic Ills are launching a big tour this week that will keep them on the road through April. The band have just added a show in NYC at the end of the North American leg at 285 Kent on March 16. No openers or advance tickets options have been announced yet. Updated tour dates are listed below, along with more pictures from their Bowery show.
