In case you missed it:

Psychic Ills are excited to announce their fifth album, Inner Journey Out. Their first album since 2013, Inner Journey Out is the culmination of an odyssey of three years of writing, traversing the psych-rock landscape they’ve carved throughout their career and taking inspired pilgrimages into country, blues, gospel, and jazz. With the album announcement, they’ve shared the first single, “I Don’t Mind,” featuring Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval. Psychic Ills have also announced European tour dates in June (listed in full below).


Great get, Psychic Ills.

Hope Sandoval has been known to lend her voice to other people's albums before (Air, Massive Attack, Chemical Brothers, Jesus & Mary Chain, Bert Jansch, Vetiver and more), but it still always feels rare, much like any new music by Hope felt before the release of a new Mazzy Star album in 2013. Now she's just spoiling us with this and a new Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions album this year.

P.S. did you know Jeff the Brotherhood covered Mazzy Star on their 2015 album Global Chakra Rhythms:

The Psychic Ills album (tracklist below) is out on June 3rd, and also features "a platoon of drummers and percussionists including Chris Millstein, Harry Druzd of Endless Boogie, Derek James of The Entrance Band, and Charles Burst, one of the record’s engineers." Here's the art:

Meanwhile, Psychic Ills-related project Honey are also releasing a new album and have three upcoming NYC shows. Psychic Ills dates are all overseas for now, and listed at the end of this post.
