Entirely predictable that I'm enjoying the new Royal Baths CD Better Luck Next Life, out now on Kanine Records. It's got that clanky, dungeon-y VU locked up in a Jesus and Mary Chain kind of vibe, reminds me of a whole bunch of bands I like from later on, too...Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Raveonettes, etc.
In fact, I was thinking about passing it along to my son (now 17, just latching onto BRMC), but the single is so perverted and decadent that I don't think I can. Not that I'd mind if he found it himself, you understand, but there's something weird about your mom recommending a song called "Faster, Harder." But as to you guys out there in cyberspace, I have no qualms at all...enjoy. (Though I really like "Darling Divine" better.)
Both tracks DL'able via Pitchfork
