Like their Elephant 6 brethren Neutral Milk Hotel, the geniuses of Olivia Tremor Control are re-emerging. However, in their case, its with a full tour and brand new material! I guess there is something in the psychedelic air…
Listen to Olivia Tremor Control’s awesome new track “The Game You Play Is in Your Head, Parts 1, 2, & 3″ and get tour dates on Pitchfork.
Also, do yourself a huge favor and pick up their 1999 album Black Foliage when it is reissued in November. It’s one of the best psych-pop records ever recorded in my opinion.
I have been listening to this track on repeat for weeks now and it still sounds amazing. like a neo-gothic Stevie Nicks singing some sort of reincarnated version of “Goodbye Horses”. Marry me, Zola Jesus.
Crash Course in Science was a Philly band formed in 1979 by art school classmates Dale Feliciello, Mallory Yago and Michael Zodorozny. After releasing a few experimental electronic 7″s through Rough Trade in the UK, the band shifted into full-on synth-pop mode in 1981 with the release of Signals From Pier Thirteen, whichhas been regarded as “influential to the techno industrial genres and an early inception of what is now known as the ‘electro’ sound. This record is still highly sought after by collectors and fans today.”
