An obvious touchstone for Royal Baths’ newest, Better Luck Next Life, reviewed today on FP.
“It’s an album drenched in violent lust and strung out on speed. The scene is always a seedy one, evoking images of back alley drug deals and ravaged motel rooms. The subject matter is undeniably dark, as singer Jigmae Baer details vampiric sex scenes and murder fantasies with an icy detachment that makes the album feel that much steamier. On occasion, Cox’s withdrawn persona crumbles and the man sounds positively demonic. Think Al Pacino in Devil’s Advocate without Keanu Reeves ruining everything.”
Tim Myers comes in to discuss the newest album from Royal Baths, Better Luck Next Life, and the seduction of American excess.
More sweet San Francisco garage from Royal Baths. We posted the track last week; now, the hazy, drugged-out video.
