Psychic Twin “Strange Diary”

Psychic Twin’s new album, Strange Diary, is a brilliant exercise in psychedelic electro-pop.  The songs on the LP were composed over four years by singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Erin Fein, who wrote them as a diary of her life over that period.  It makes sense that a lot of different emotions surface over the course of the record, but things are still kept moving forward by a persistent retro beat that pulses through the songs.  The result is an album that plays like a meditation, at once profound and personal, and a resounding success for Psychic Twin.
