AHE-14 PSYCHOBUILDINGS - s/t - 12" EP: $12 / CD: $8
After releasing two singles last year NYC's Psychobuildings unveil their first 12" record in EP format. Just shy of 20 minutes the EP showcases the band's already unbeatable dance numbers as well as some finely constructed psychedelic trance inducers heard previously only in their much buzzed about live set. Balancing New Romantic synth explorations with the beat boxing lyricism of Old School Hip-Hop Psychobuildings have come up sounding fresh in delivery and style. Front man Peter LaBier brings the guts back into pop with a feel for groove and and an ear for hooks. Produced by Peter Wade (M.N.D.R) and fleshed out by the synths of Peter Schuette (Test House) and multi-instrumentalist Juan Pieczanski (Small Black), the self-titled EP fires on all cylinders from start to finish.
