PsychoYogi, the brainchild of guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Chris Ramsing, draw their complex yet accessible sound from a wide variety of influences, including King Crimson, Captain Beefheart, XTC and Frank Zappa, as well as from the orchestral and chamber canon of Messiaen, Bartok and Stravinsky.
Digital Vagrancy is the band’s fourth album, following hard on the heels of 2020’s Dangerous Devices, described by one review as «a journey through of unparalleled bewitchery», and builds on their now establish sound incorporating rock, jazz and pop, with more than a touch of Canterbury Scene prog thrown in for good measure.
We hope you enjoy listening to this promotional copy. You may feature individual tracks from the album in any podcast or radio show, however redistribution of either the downloaded album or the streaming link is strictly prohibited.
Psychoyogi’s music is a diverse mixture of instrumental colors, melodies, and words. The songs present social and political critique alongside personal moments and moods. In the words of Mike O’Toole (Beat Magazine) «heir sound is unparalleled and cannot be categorized. It is a rejection of docile adherence to a single musical style».
