PSYCHIC REALITY / LA VAMPIRES "Not Not Fun (NNF185)" SYNTH WAVE NOISE LIMITED LP
"The first side of this fun split LP is from San Francisco's Leyna Noel, aka Psychic Reality, whose grit-spewing no-fi electronics and spluttering drum machine ditties accompany weird and heavily distorted songs. Noel may be somewhat out of tune and fairly primitive with her arrangements (to say the least) but there's something massively enjoyable about her unusual brand of wailing pop psychosis. LA Vampires on the other hand, is a new project from Pocahaunted's Amanda Brown. While her former bandmate Bethany Cosentino went on to form hotly tipped pop duo Best Coast, Brown remains firmly rooted in weirdness, employing shamanic drone and hypnogogic sample-hopping for a mesmerising flow of ideas. At times it sounds like a bedroom Boards Of Canada, at others like the far-out pop exotica of Lucky Dragons, or merely like an extension of Pocahaunted's own dubbed-out atmospherics, but it's always entertaining. Recommended." - BOOMKAT
