Psychedelic Horseshit - Laced
Delightfully labelled as ‘Shitgaze’ the noise made by Psychedelic Horseshit is a hotchpotch of weird, glitchy and occasionally beautiful noises that combine with an atonal vocal drone to create what appears to be have designed specifically to be a ‘difficult’ listen. There is nothing wrong with that per se but there needs to be some kind of focus or drive for that to work and that is sadly missing throughout. The unbearably long ‘I Hate The Beach’, meandering along aimlessly for 7½ minutes, is a prime example of the main flaw with the whole album: the complete lack of interest in what is coming next. The really disappointing thing is that Psychedelic Horseshit clearly have bucket loads of ideas and with a bit more effort, Laced could have been an interesting experience but, in the end, it is just a head scratchingly dull one.
