PSYCHIC WOUNDS - Self-Titled single

This was shared earlier by MrStoneBeliever. Two song single/EP from a new band out of Maine. The decidedly Uncle Acid-like opener ("Wandering Soul") drives forward at a good pace. The riff is familiar but has a good feel. This is more rawboned than Uncle Acid, the song builds to a hellish crescendo of noise. The second track ("Interstellar Nightmare") has a Windhand meets White Stripes thing which is odd but good. The songs combine for 9 minutes total and it's PAY-WHAT-YOU-WANT.

Here's what the band has to say about itself on bandcamp:
Psychic Wounds crack open a can of 70s psychedelia and imbue the whole with classic riffing and uncanny experimentation leading you off the gravitational pull and into a restless void while being screeched at profusely and with heinous lament. Not for the vain nor the unguided.
I'm certain I want to hear more from this band. Right now their sound is not entirely unlike a Doctor Smoke. This won't appeal to everyone but I have an idea that if you're here reading about this type of music, then you like a certain style or sound in the first place. Psychic Wounds has that sound.
