It remains to be seen whether Sydney’s Royal Headache will release another song as irresistible as the sugar-rush power pop of “High,” but considering that they’re only two albums into their career, time is on their side. The quartet hurtles through their second full-length, also called High, as if the Saints never broke up and the Ramones never left 53rd and 3rd (What’s Your Rupture? releases it in the US on August 21). Instead, it’s all strained vocals, rapid-fire guitar, and careening, twisted-limb rhythms. The way Shogun shout-slurs his lyrics adds a whole other dimension as “phone” becomes “fuck” and “you hate my face” becomes “you ate my face.” With songs about cannibals and vultures, Dude York and VHS (Violent Human System) nicely round out this bill.
