TONIGHT: Royal Baths at The Earl


Late last year, Royal Baths released Litanies, a sleeper of an album that wormed its way into my brain and managed to stay in heavy rotation deep into 2011.  The San Francisco band fits in easily with the current crop of ’60s psych-rock revivalists, but they add a distinct veneer of low key menace that sets them apart.  Stoned vocals drift strangely over the tense buzz of guitars, with an occasional detour into damaged nursery rhyme territory.  It’s good music for a cloudy day.

See them tonight at The Earl, with Grave Babies, Cassandras, and Shepherds.
