"This guy’s solipsistic, overly literal, his mind orbiting another planet, the mix unevenly doubling his inner monologues: 'What do I wear to your funeral / When we were together, I never wore clothes.'Synth player Nathan Joyner, guitarist Paul Vieira, and drummer Charles Ovett all up the psychodrama by savage degrees, leading off with a grinding, foghorn dirge that eventually expands into a punishing industrial hailstorm."
"If the music itself isn't in retreat from society then, society backs away from it."
The new electronic, stream-of-consciousness technofear clip from former members of Arab On Radar, Some Girls and All Leather is as much fun as you can have without being trapped in a poorly ventilated room with gallons of spilled cleaning products.

It makes sense that the nutjobs behind such a work of deranged genius would come from bands including Arab on Radar, Doomsday Student and Some Girls.
Noise Rock pioneers, Eric Paul (Arab On Radar, Chinese Stars, Doomsday Student), Paul Vieira (Chinese Stars, Doomsday Student), and Nathan Joyner (Some Girls, All Leather, Hot Nerds), Charles Ovett (Battle Beasts, Joules) venture through uncharted territory with their new band. Nathan Joyner’s grinding synths and “found sound” buries the seed of each song deep into the fertile ground - while Paul Vieira’s manic, fuzzed-out guitars, Ovett's bombastic drumming and Eric Paul’s obsessive lyrics shower the proceedings with equal parts sunshine and rain.
The band has released two albums, Loud As Laughter (Skin Graft) + A Bluebird Vacation (Deathbomb Arc) and two EPs, The Next World (Skin Graft) + Mouths (Deathbomb Arc). According to the band, the process of writing is unusual for them. San Diego-based Joyner sends files filled with the skeletons of songs to Vieira and Paul in Providence, Rhode Island and Ovett in Charlotte, NC. The three members add their parts, and then the songs undergo an arduous, back and forth until all of the members agree on the final version. The distance of the members and the anomalous approach to writing resulted in a diverse, yet coherent recordings, that pick-up and drop-off the listener at dramatically different places. Like nerve endings spliced and sewn back together, the process spawned a whole new auditory system - which serves as the infrastructure for Psychic Graveyard.
