We are very excited to see the return of Psychic Ills to Seattle along with their Sacred Bones label mates all the way from Santiago, Chile- Föllakzoid! It’s been quite a few years since the Ills have been up to Seattle and since those days they’ve seemingly reversed engineered their sound from free-form alien soundtracks into a levitation inducing slow-mo desert boogie. After a long journey through the psychedelic jungle they’ve found themselves back at the sacred temple of the eternal 4/4 backbeat getting their groove on.
Föllakzoid on the other hand are on their first trip to the states and bring intense and futuristic Krautrock rhythms that seem to push the listener sky-ward in dizzying and euphoric fashion. Their latest release “II” is one of the finest new records I’ve heard in some time and this rare appearance is not one to sleep on. Have a listen to the black hole space disco of this track entitled “Pulsar”-
We are stoked to have locals Kingdom of the Holy Sun open the evening up with their heavy and hypnotic vibes. Show up early, these guys just got back from a West Coast tour and have been putting on some great shows over the past year or so and recording some killer stuff which you should check out HERE.
