Prince Rupert's Drops

Brooklyn's psych-pop group Prince Rupert's Drops dropped their debut album, Run Slow, a few weeks ago via Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records. It's a well-steeped cup of mushroom tea, brimming with ragged guitars, drone outs and enough melody to keep the straight interested. You can stream the whole thing below.

Prince Rupert's Drops have a couple local shows coming up. They'll play Mercury Lounge on December 29 with Alex Bleeker and the Freaks (tickets); and then again at Mercury Lounge on Jan 22 opening for Widowspeak at their record release party (tickets).

Album stream is below.

Yes, the "chick singer" is adorable. However, the band name can lick my sweaty balls.

this is the first authentically interesting brilliant band that I have heard in ages, and i mean ages. Combines captures the San Fran aesthetic and brilliance of other blues pop/freakout/prog bands of that lost era. Its a lost art, really. These guys have internalized what was great about those bands and make it their own.
