PSCIENCE - s/t LP [Space Taker Sounds]


Gonerfest ALUMS! 

"New Orleans-based super group with Betsy Shepherd (vocals/guitar) from Thee Tsunamis, Sarah Mason (vocals/synth) from Black Abba, Rob Craig (drums) from Buck Biloxi & the Fucks and Giorgio Murderer, and Sam Delucia (bass) from Trampoline Team! Betsy may have moved back to Louisiana after making a mark in Indiana with Thee Tsunamis, but this sure does have the current Midwestern love for early new wave and synth pop. But stripped down to punk-like bare bones, of course. Think Erik Nervous & the Beta Blockers—with female vox. Betsy’s little-girl vocals and pop songs aren’t too far from her garage/girl-group approach in Thee Tsunamis, but re-imagined as post-punk in the Suburban Lawns/B-52’s mode. It’s very groovy. Titles like “Test Tube Babies” and “Xray Eyes” give it an arty/trashy 1978 UK vibe. Synths whirl and beep. A little No Wave yelp in there too. Sarah’s vocals and songs have a more monotone post-punk bluntness. It’s a nice contrast. Her tune “H20” reminds me of MX-80 Sound. This is an exciting new band and an impressive return for Betsy. Dig!" - Eddie Flowers
