PSYCHIC TEENS: Come: LP

Art damaged post rock kind of thing. There are definite nods to The Birthday Party here, with the drum and bass playing off each other, playing snaky lines that weave in and out, creating this dark atmosphere that teeters on potential chaos. The songs are well executed and sound like this band puts in the hours in the rehearsal room. But there’s an edge to this that is missing. Maybe the production is too clean? With music like this, the listener has to feel the grit and sweat. This is just a bit too cool. Or the droll delivery of the vocals? This isn’t terrible, but it could be better.
