The Psychic Paramount - Gamelan Into the Mink Supernatural

New York noise-rock trio The Psychic Paramount took my ears and brain by storm with their 2005 album, 'Gamelan Into the Mink Supernatural'. The first time I heard middle-mark track "Echoh Air" I knew the band would become a favorite -- gritty and powerful bass foundations, walls of effects clinging to frantic guitar, and a drummer who swiftly keeps the waves crashing. The closing title-track, "Gamelan Into the Mink Supernatural", wraps up the album perfectly -- a ten minute epic that sounds like music to a deleted scene of Sunshine.

(to me anyways.

The band has recently been performing material off their new album, with the release just around the corner.
With the ideas expressed on 'Gamelan', the sky is the limit...or wherever they choose to venture next in space.
