As if 2016 hadn’t already taken its heartbreaking toll, we lost another legend this week. Prince leapt off to the great jam in the sky, and we’re all here listening to the sound of doves crying in the purple rain. But rather than let the sadness overwhelm you, take it as a reminder to celebrate and embrace the artists in your lives while we still have them. So, in honor of the Purple One, let’s celebrate the moment and let a fresh batch of tunes warm your heart.
10. Psychic Ills – “Another Change”
A few weeks ago, the New York psychedelic rock veterans, Psychic IIIs teamed up with Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval on their first single, “I Don’t Mind”, which will be featured on their forthcoming album, Inner Journey Out, via Sacred Bones. Now, the duo have followed up with a new song called “Another Change”, which features their staple ’60s reverb-cloaked garage rock. While it ventures into the familiar territory of 2013’s One Track Mind, 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. –Alejandra Ramirez
