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.
Here at the Rock Sound offices we're the kings of babbling (just listen to our podcasts for the evidence) but none of us claim to be psychic. Although we did predict the second coming of Fred Durst, but that's a whole other story.
Anyway, Psychic Babble is the new project from Circa Survive man Colin Fangicetto and it's rather quirky. Their debut album 'My Brother's Ears / My Sister's Eyes' is out on August 16, but in the meantime you can stream and download the opening track 'Five Folds Kiss (Don't Sleep)' using the Soundcloud player below.
