Track Of The Day :: Russian Baths - Ambulance
Words: Linn Branson
This rocks so fuckin hard you'll either end up with hearing loss, dead from exhaustion, or totally in love with these Brooklyn noise-rockin' mothers, Russian Baths.
As a debut single they don't come a lot more thrilling - or loud - than 'Ambulance'. Mixed by The Men's Ben Greenberg, it is apparently to be the first in a run of cassette-only singles the quartet are planning to put out over the next months.
'Ambulance' evokes something very exciting and penetrating as they run a raft of loud and demanding guitar riffs against a low in mix vocal and hypnotic drone-like drums that seep through the crevices. Highly impressive. Intensely moreish.
