about

"Is this a case of being able to take the guys out of Glasgow but not the Glasgow out of the guys? Because Psych Is Dead is bookended by two numbers of dark and ominous fogginess. The rusty swirls of 'Nuraghe' are built around a heavy, simple and repetitive bass line that'll flatten you into submission. The title track's much lighter; reminiscent of Acid Mothers at their pinkest and most floaty. Then '#FW' brings the LP to a fiercely dirging no-wave climax not dissimilar to revving the engine of a fucked rocket until it flatulates poisonous fumes over all surrounding flora." - THE QUIETUS

"Greying out all the happy corners, they now return with a super repetitive, very grating but also quite magnanimous record called, if you hadn’t guessed, ‘Psych is Dead’. It has the same strands of simple guitar hypnosis and taut rhythms, but, being that it’s a Riot Season edition, it drives home the noise and the nastiness for all to enjoy, making good on psych rock’s more embittered excursions into space." - NORMAN RECORDS

"The Cosmic Dead does not believe in killing you softly. Psych Is Dead is approximately 45 minutes (spread over three songs) of utter sonic menace, from Glasgow with love. This a record not for the faint of heart, but those who risk the health of their eardrums will be well rewarded. Formidable and at times ferocious, dark as you could ask for, this record is not to be taken lightly. Well done by the self-proclaimed "Buckfaustian" carousers. Psych is dead. Long live psych!" - FUZZY LOGIC


'Psych Is Dead' is the sixth full length album from The Cosmic Dead. Glowing embers of a few days spent recording in a sweaty Sardinian kitchen overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
