I slept on this one, folks.
Somehow my radar didn't go off on this one and now the album's already out -- on What's Your Rupture?
Sydney's Royal Headache create buzzing power-pop with a few punk touches. It's part Superchunk and part Dischord and part...soul band?
Whatever it is, it's fantastic. Royal Headache are frighteningly good and the album cranks along with the sort of live-in-the-studio sound rarely heard these days.
Energy + passion + hooks + brevity = Royal Headache.
