Album Review: Psychedelic Horseshit – ‘Laced’

Matt Whitehurst isn’t raising the bar for noise with his umpteenth release, but at least he’s articulate. Sounding like rotting Americana, the bulk of [b]‘Laced’[/b] is really a blues album cut up with grime beats, techno horns, white noise, Syrian midi keys and ambient synths coated in typically washed-out hypnagogic-pop style; we’ve been here before.

Where this album stands out, however, is in its unambiguous lyrics: “Everything in this world is laced”. Noise music has been content to let its harsh aesthetics do the talking alone for too long; with [b]‘Laced’[/b], Whitehurst has challenged that paradigm.
