Royal Baths – Litanies
I found this via NPR’s Carrie Brownstein’s favorite 10 albums of 2010 list. I tend to trust NPR’s opinions on music about 85% of the time, so I went with it. Glad I did. It’s super fuzzy rock, but with nice melodies and songwriting. It’s fuzz you can bob your head to. Some people may not feel a lot of the 60’s sounds coming up and out from the dead – but it’s acceptable in moderation, and when it’s actually good. Excellent pick from Carrie. Worth your dime – recommended.
