The seekers in New York City’s Psychic Ills
have spent more than a decade following their muse wherever it takes them. Inner Journey Out
started out the way many Ills records have - with frontman Tres Warren's demos. Like all of their records, Elizabeth Hart's bass is the glue that holds everything together. Where other recent albums found Warren overdubbing himself to create a blown-out, widescreen sound, this recording handed the reigns to a multitude of guest players. A cadre of musicians and vocalists – including Mazzy Star
’s Hope Sandoval
, who duets on lead single “I Don’t Mind” – join in on the journey. This is the first record to feature touring keyboard player Brent Cordero, his Farfisa and Wurlitzer work is a staple throughout. Rounding things out, is a platoon of drummers and percussionists including Chris Millstein, Harry Druzd of Endless Boogie
, Derek James of The Entrance Band
, and Charles Burst, one of the record’s engineers. These musicians build the frame on which Warren lays his hazy guitar and vocals. An endless array of friends and guests also provide pedal steel guitar, horns, strings, and backing vocals, which culminate in a career-defining moment for the Ills.

The 405 interview
“Wonderful morphine blues from drone-laced New Yorkers…A terrific laidback, sleep headed dose of minor key psychedelia” - UNCUT
"The song does add new elements as gospel bits of transcending harmonies and country traces of longing, pedal steel guitar notes coalesce in a Spiritualized meets Primal Scream soundscape.” - Consequence of Sound
“It’s an extremely promising omen for this band’s continued evolution.” - Stereogum
