Look at these babes. When did rock and roll get so cute and stuff? What’s that Silver Jews song where Dave Berman talks about how there’s no more ugly rockers? Whatever. Normally, we’re skeptical of good looking bands that aren’t from Nashville and make jangly-garage-semi psych-fuzzy art jams, but the more you look into Baths the more you can tell that they’re pretty for real. They’re from San Francisco and just put out a new cassette on one of our favorite labels, Wizard Mountain. Suffice to say, it’s pretty killer. Really really though, who can scoff at a band that does a Gories cover and puts a Mark E Smith line on their myspace? You? Ok, fine.
Baths aren’t scheduled to come anywhere near the Nashy area for a while, but they are slated to release a new 7″ with HoZac soon as well as their debut full length on Woodsist. That was quick. They’ve also already got one 7″ out there on Rad Key Records. Get ’em!
