PC Worship Announces New EP With A Dizzying 13-Minute Track

Listen to “My Lens,” a long-form bout of Basement Hysteria.

September 08, 2015

PC Worship, the impossible-to-pin-down noise-rock collective from New York, will release a new EP on November 13th via Northern Spy Records. It's called Basement Hysteria, and the title's meant to encapsulate both "the physical space in which the band records / practices and the mental space achieved by spending long nights under the influence of sleep-deprived hysteria, splitting time between long days of work and cultivating material," according to a press blurb.


"My Lens" is one of its four straight-to-tape tracks, a cock-eyed 13-minute rock song replete with tuneless banjo twangs, an obsessively slow-and-steady vocal, a few moments that sound carefully orchestrated, and lots that will probably never be recreated. It catches its second wind a little past the 8-minute mark; the guitars get trippier, the singing more menacing. Where's my head?/ lost in the shed, collective leader Justin Frye intones, like he's officially hit the point in the night when the shadows start moving.
