Psychic Reality / LA Vampires CS



Limited cassette edition of this OOP split LP, grip it while it exists. Here’s what we said before: “Definite off-the-grid mentalities prevail on this genre-dissolving split between San Fran anima soul voyager Leyna Noel aka Psychic Reality and So-Cal acid-jazz crate-digger LA Vampires. Noel’s toured the states coast-to-coast and dropped a couple potent tape/CDR effigies in the past year but this is her vinyl debut and it captures everything searing and singular about her live alchemy in glowing, glorious detail. Four inter-flowing songs of tone-float piano keys, bedroom drum machines, and white light amplifier vox. Trance-damaged and truth-seeking. LA Vampires’ side madlibs through a more mercurial matrix, using slowed/screwed tapes, boombox Casio FX, low end theories, and bleached voice patterns to conjure a reverb chamber’s worth of dance floor mirages. Future collabs with Zola Jesus and Matrix Metals should expound her rhythm method mission. Abuse yr illusion.” Pro-dubbed and imprinted tapes in J-cards with a color-tweaked version of the LP cover portrait by Caitlin C. Mitchell. Edition of 100.
