Needle Drop: Psychic Lines, Dance, Cartoon Skeleton

Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Philip Jacob—aka Psychic Lines—self produces a delectable blend of sparkling freak folk.

His nonchalant baritone paired with his unique, oddball pop sensibilities and soothing tremolo guitars makes for a refreshing listen that’s both intellectually stimulating and musically satiating, much like other slightly quirky, outcast songwriters such as Leonard Cohen and Stephin Merritt.

Speaking of bands like The Magnetic Fields and Timber Timbre, there seems to be a connective thread between their grounded yet experimental aesthetic and Psychic Lines’ indie pop. It’s the tension they both strike in their moody musings which always seem to be delivered with a good helping of heart-on-the-sleeve emotion and dare I say…heart?

Psychic Lines’ newest offering, Dance, Cartoon Skeleton, arrived in stores at the tail end of May and is definitely an album that should be savored from beginning to end.
