Psychoyogi – Accident Prone (Psychoyogi, 2018)
Accident Prone is the latest recording by British progressive act Psychoyogi. The band’s style cuts across various musical genres, incorporating a wide range of influences and moods, including progressive rock, jazz and avant-garde expressions.
The vocal style is unique, sometimes more spoken word than traditional singing, with socially-conscious lyrics that cast doubt on western social values.
Psychoyogi’s sound mostly revolves around the quirky interaction between the guitar and saxophone and rhythm section. You’ll hear echoes of Henry Cow, Adrian Belew-era King Crimson and even some Canterbury minus the keyboards.
The band lineup includes Chris Ramsing on guitar and vocals; Justin Casey on drums and percussion; Izzy Stylish on bass; and John Macnaughton on alto and tenor sax.
