mp3: Royal Headache- Down the Lane

I thought I’d have an accurate idea of what kind of sound to expect from Aussie-based Royal Headache who just put out this single on punk label What’s Your Rupture?.  Even the opening 4-seconds of feedback supported my lo-fi/thrashy/punk assumption.  I’m very glad I was wrong.  Turns out Royal Headache is much more Guided by Voices than Black Flag and crafted an incredibly melodic and catchy piece of rock with their single ‘Down the Lane’.  The track has a distinct 60s rock vibe that is making it hard for me to take this track off of replay.  What’s Your Rupture? is prepping to reissue their 2011 self-titled album on May 8th.
