Judging from their MySpace page, Small Black-associated Brooklyn trio Psychobuildings are into James Brown, ESG, Suicide, and Fleetwood Mac. You’ll get some of that listening to “Terror Management.” Maybe some Was (Not Was), too. Speaking of funk choreography — judging from Psychobuildings’ live show, frontman Peter LaBier’s inspired by Brown’s moves as well as his sounds. You’ll get a sense of that here via his vocal struts.
The have a show 8/14 at Glasslands with Blood Orange and the Samps. Get more info/influences at MySpace.
