it possible to be accidentally menacing? I would guess no, myself,
but if you can, Pseudosix has cornered that particular market. From
the way singer Tim Perry calmly sings “I don’t like your
jokes, and I don’t like your apathy/None of that weight is of
value to me”, to the hallucinogenic repetition of "Chasing
You Down," Pseudosix’s debut effort
of vaguely rootsy, hushed indie rock remains disconcerting from start to
finish." - Stylus Magazine
Portland-based troubadour Tim Perry is the backbone of Pseudosix. A thin, wiry
man with penetrating eyes, he's the pensive sort, perfect for the melancholic,
deeply intense music he creates with Pseudosix. He's joined on Days of Delay by
Emil Snizek (of The Holy Sons and Grails) and ex-31knots drummer Joe Kelly.
A Pseudosix song is economical; when all there is to be said has been sung, the
song quickly wraps to a close. The band's brevity plays to their strong suits,
of which there are many: Among them, melody, a potent lyric, and a sublime, creeping
sense of foreboding.
Days of Delay is one of those albums for which listening is an active
exercise rather than just a passive absorption. What you find, when you listen
closely, is an album full of paranoia and death." - Splendid " This
Portland, OR trio produce a thoroughly engaging, mildly perplexing blend of Americana,
folk and indie rock..." - Comes With a Smile
