World Cafe Next: Psychic Ills

The New York City band ably incorporates blues and gospel inflections into its hazy psych-rock.
At its heart, Psychic Ills is the duo of singer and guitarist Tres Warren and bassist Elizabeth Hart. The New York City band has covered a lot of musical ground in its career, which is certainly evident in its fine new album Inner Journey Out. Country, blues, gospel and jazz are all handled extremely well on this album. In this segment, hear "I Don't Mind," featuring Mazzy Star's Hope Sandoval on vocals, along with the gospel-inflected song "Another Change."
