Basses Wild: Elizabeth Hart of Psychic Ills

May 12, 2010

We debuted another new feature tonight on Girl Germs. “Basses Wild” is an opportunity for us to showcase a female bass player in a band that we might not normally play on Girl Germs – a “wild card,” if you will (get it?).

This week we featured the song “Red Split” by Psychic Ills, an experimental band from New York that combines elements of drone, noise and psych to create futuristic, yet hauntingly timeless songs. Elizabeth Hart, Psychic Ills’ bass player (and the only lady in the band) is not only a great musician, but her stage presence is nothing short of mesmerizing. She is also involved in the NYC dance-music collective Skint. Psychic Ills just released a new 12″ EP, Astral Occurrence.

Check out this epic video for “Mantis,” and see what we mean by mesmerizing!
