Album Notes
Dishwater Psychics stripped down their sound to reveal the layers of guitar, bass, and drums that were previously obscured by drifting clouds of tape hiss and broken glass.

Recorded at home in Dayton, Ohio and Denver, Colorado, "The Signal Will Fade" EP is a concise, organic collection of rock songs. Drummer Michael Behrenhausen (Maraca 5-0, Blusom) adds a punch and tingle that carries the other instruments above sea level for the first time. Layered, half-conscious vocals tie it all together, wondering if it will fall apart at any moment.

Clean, crisp, contemplative
Won't be long before groupies will be swarming you for pieces of clothing, vials of sweat, locks of hair and any bit of your bod.

Listened twice already. Really like first and fourth tracks. Two and three toe-tappers, too. I really like your vocals, particularly the phrasing. And the lyrics are contemplative, though i'll need to listen more to divine them better.

Clean, crisp guitar work, and nice ambient sound. Thanks for the listen.

Chris Jones is the king of indie rock!
There's that one musician you hear and you realize they are a genius.
That musician is the amazing Chris Jones. Do not overlook this band from Dayton, Ohio.
Just when you thought the Top 40 was taking over the world, Dishwater Psychics
scream "NO WAY PAL!". By far some of the best bass work I have ever heard.
There are no duds on this cd, only treasures of a new musical regime. Buy it, know it, love it.
Thanks in advance.

Bees Knees

These guys have that sound that just screams middle America. Good down home vocals and sarcastic wit without turning it on themselves, and an ear for a good hook. If going out on a limb I'd say GBV meets Destroyer as you hear good pop, but nods to David Bowie here and there. The singer/guitarist John also runs the cool ezine Sponic.

Greetings from Spain
You sound great! An excellent album that fits perfectly in my show. Is a pleasure for me to introduce your CD to my listeners. ("La Otra Musica" on Radio FM80 in Cadiz, Spain).

Follow-up blows away its predecessor
Last year I reviewed The Dishwater Psychics' previous effort, Candlewax Horizon, which featured only a modicum of songs that would be considered memorable. The album walked the line between lo-fi and no-fi; I remember thinking that only the haphazard fashion in which it was recorded was holding the songs back.

Well, a few months have passed, and these sons of Dayton, Ohio have produced a five-song EP that blows Candlewax Horizon away -- not only because of its improved production (the band still favors their signature bare-bones style), but more importantly, due to the growing, evolving sophistication of songwriters John Wenzel and Chris Jones.

Previous lyrics were shaky and muddled (and not in the Murmur sense) and what little "feel" they generated was sacrificed to patchy arrangement. Now, the lyrics hold their own (with some sacrifice of melody) and the songs are allowed to flow and play up to the band's strengths, such as Dan Miller's stark guitar arpeggios and the welcome drumming of Michael Behrenhausen.

My only real criticism is that the bands still isn't really exploiting many of their songs' inherent harmonies -- which is puzzling, considering how much attention is paid to the album's other vocals. This EP is also a little narrower in scope than its predecessor, but never parochial; ultimately, it's a case of a band honing and developing its sound rather than inventing anything new. For the Dishwater Psychics, the next step will be to write another full-length and hopefully to tour the East Coast -- when the weather gets warmer, of course. -Daniel Arizona


Surprisingly consistent and accessible
Ohio's Dishwater Psychics have been recording since 1999. What is interesting about the band is that they do not all play together at the same time. Instead, each musician plays their part in isolation and then forwards their track (or tracks) onto the next band member for their input. Considering the approach, the pop music on "The Signal Will Fade" is surprisingly consistent and accessible. The band's tunes are basic mid-tempo pop...and the vocals are particularly impressive. Well written songs like "Broken Feet" and "The Glass Awaits" make this little homemade EP a swell listen...
