Royal Baths

Better Luck Next Life

Kanine Records [2012]

Royal Baths follow up their debut rocker, Litanies with the dark garage-meets-psychedelic blues LP, Better Luck Next Life. Better Luck Next Life sounds as if it could have been recorded late at night, under very poor light in a cold smoke-filled room. It's what I'd imagine seeing and hearing if Thurston Moore somehow filled in for Lou Reed on an early Velvet Underground performance to a crowd of seven or eight enthralled concertgoers.
