Psychic Ills and On The Beach

OK, so we're not familiar with the Psychic Ills and trance music. But, hey, if they're influenced by Neil Young's music, they must be cool, right?
From Self-Titled Magazine:
Tres Warren (guitar/vocals): The first time I heard Neil Young was because my parents had Harvest and CSNY stuff. I don’t listen to him too much these days, but whenever I want to hear something older by him, I put On The Beach on. I like that it’s when he sort of put it in cruise control and just started doing what he did without refining things so much.
Elizabeth Hart (bass): Harvest was my first real listen, too, on a cassette that my best friend’s boyfriend had given to her. I was 14. We created a whole listening ritual for Neil Young—only by candlelight, and while in search of any little piece of paper that looked exciting enough to burn. This kept us occupied and enthralled for hours, and only occasionally would we switch out Neil Young for Metallica on the stereo.
