Sadly (for left coasters), this November Ms. Leyna Noel aka Psychic Reality decamped from SF to NYC, but before packing up her every worldly possession and road-tripping trans-America she eked out a sliver of time in the studio with Phil Manley (Trans Am, Jonas Reinhardt, Fucking Champs) to record her debut full-length on 2 inch tape. Vibrant New Age is the result. Noel’s New Age is not the 80’s redux of healing crystals, pastel fades, dolphin consciousness, etc, but a living, electrified awakening. From the high drama drum machinery of “Fruit” and “Expla” to the naked, airy avant-pop of “Hi High” and “Fanta” through to the stuttery, mechanized power ballad finale, “Soft Script,” this is Noel at her most majestic and fully realized and it’s a life-force to behold.
