about

The sound of fireworks used as a musical instrument on ‘A Bluebird
Vacation’ perfectly symbolizes the range of powers Psychic Graveyard
wields. Pretty and enthusiastic if they want, but if they choose to
get in your face, the sound of celebration becomes one of pain.
Interweaving field recordings like, and other non-traditional
instruments into their distinctive style of rhythmic meanness, Psychic
Graveyard find themselves in new territory. Very few tracks include
guitars at all. The results work hand in hand with the lyrics
addressing very personal experiences with mental illness,
anti-depressants and benzodiazepines, and the difficulty of helping
family going through their own challenges. These sounds don’t blindly
spin into despair nor foolishly claim that overcoming just requires
finding the right vocal melody. These songs are as messy as life
itself, in all its stupid beauty.
