Psychiatric Metaphors promises to launch you straight into space (if you weren’t already on your way there) with their echo-riddled, psych-garage sound. Heavier on the shout vocals than most psych bands might ever dare, these guys are edging toward bad trip territory. “Groovy” is not the word you’re looking for– it’s more of a psychedelic heart attack. But life ain’t a smooth cruise down the love canal every day of the week, and the Psychiatric Metaphors are here to remind you that breakdowns can and will happen.
“Heavy fuzzed-out guitars and a loping beat drive most of the songs in this set, with some of the tunes sounding like the Ramones on a couple of tabs of blotter. Which seems to be the point. Taylor’s delight in creating a crunchy retro soundtrack, ala 13th Floor Elevators, seems to be pretty apparent. The songs slide by smoothly, leaving a pleasant afterglow of satisfaction and a desire to start over from the top to see if it was really as good as it seemed the first time around.” - Speak into my Good Eye
“Sam Taylor knows that memorable anything-could-happen-for-the-first-time musical decade called the ‘sixties’ quite well, the mind-blowing side that is – he doesn’t copy it, he translates it in today’s neo-psychedelic language “
