Psychic TV – New York Story (2007)

Scroll down to content

It’s not that Genesis P-Orridge isn’t capable of the odd moment of beauty. The ballad “New York Story” reminds you where Califone’s Tim Rutili found the prettiest song on his last album; the cut is as liquidly clear and simple as “The Orchids.” Vocals are reverb’d to an unearthly polish and drenched in cynicism: “Life is a vacuum pump / always sucking me dry.” It is so lovely that you float right over shocking imagery. (“Your body is so cold / It’s turning blue / You look so cold / Not human anymore.”) [Source]
