ROY AND THE DEVIL’S MOTORCYCLE: Im Reich Der Wilden Tiere (No Milk, No Sugar): CD

This Swiss band with a mouthful of a band name shocked me with their brand of spaced out psyche rock, a guitar-driven ride into “garage-rock lite” land that never gets as loud and rambunctious as I would prefer. There’s nothing threatening here, and that’s perfectly okay, I guess? A trio of covers make up the seven songs on this CD including songs penned by Janis Joplin and Little Anthony, the latter of which is a standout track. –Mark Twistworthy (Voodoo Rhythm, voodoorhythm.com)
