With the rest of the new breed of San Fran garage-psych bands overdosing on oversized lollipops and weekend "trips" to the Redwoods, it's a wonder the urban vampirism of Royal Baths hasn't slipped through the cracks. Or perhaps it has, in a more literal sense. The band's brooding psychedelia drones with a nocturnal echo so distant and void that it sounds as though they have been amplified from the bottom of the abyss. Think the repetitive nihilism of "Venus in Furs" injected with just the right amount of that Jesus and Mary Chain pill-swagger. When dealing with sedatives this powerful, just be sure to keep hydrated. And stop burning yourself with cigarettes. CHRIS CANTINO
