Circa Survive man steps out on his own...

Far from the EBM act you might imagine based on the name alone, Psychic Babble is the solo alter ego of Circa Survive guitarist Colin Frangicetto, who serves up 10 tracks of lush indie-electronica. Self-produced and released on his own label, it’s a consistently dreamy affair in the likes of opener ‘Five Fold Kiss (Don’t Sleep)’ and ‘Samantha’, but avoids becoming too languid through the strength and stylistic diversity of tunes like ‘Radio Songs’ and ‘Follow Your Bliss’. The concept of background ‘chillout music’ rightly leaves many people cold; Psychic Babble’s debut is proof that being chilled does not equate to being dull.
