Michelles, “Seasick Accident”


Chicago's Michelles have the antidote to winter glum with their Beatles-inflected psychedelia. On “Seasick Accident”, a track from their recently-released self-titled album, there is no shortage of wah-inflected, crunchy guitar, and minor-toned organ pulses that shift and sway like ocean swells. The Ty Segall-reminiscent guitar breakdown and fuzzed-out solo mid-song puts the whole LSD-dripping track over the edge with its caterwauling mania. You can stream the entirety of the self-titled album at Michelles' Bandcamp, then catch them in Chicago at Township on Thursday the 5th with Coins and Geoff Farina (ex-Karate)'s new band.
