COOL GHOULS Animal Races (Empty Cellar)
This San Franciscan quartet peddle an unashamedly retro sound, with the title track channelling both The Byrds and Krautrock, but they pull it off with the sheer exuberance of the performance. Other tracks also have that 60s sun-dappled sound and the jangly psyche guitar that it invokes, but (ironically!) Time Capsule has a modern edge. Its the third album in two years from this young band, and its a goodie.
