Quick Take: My Rocks Are Dreams by Psychic Friend

Will Schwartz swaps San Francisco for L.A. and his guitar for a piano

Add a comment

Will Schwartz, the leading man of indie rock outfit Imperial Teen, has for his lucky third side gig (Hey Willpower is his second) swapped San Francisco for L.A. and his guitar for a piano. What he hasn’t abandoned is crisp pop songwriting. With Hole’s Patty Schemel on drums, Psychic Friend hits the same piano-forward sweet spot as Spoon and Scissor Sisters—and the sound goes down just as easily. (Dangerbird, $13)
