Best of NYC #98: The Strange Architecture of Psychobuildings

I'm not sure what kind of architecture you might use to construct a psychobuilding, but the band is definitely a supergroup of local freak talent. Singer/songwriter Peter LaBier has teamed up with Peter Schuette (Silk Flowers) and Juan Pieczanski (Small Black) to create Psychobuildings. These are a trio that blends towering layers of synth and percussion, creating the band’s upbeat-yet-eerily dark electronic dance sound. Songs like 'Birds of Prey' and 'Terror Management' from their past 12-inch releases, provide an aural document standing in for the manic insanity of their highly choreographed live shows. - Mike Levine
