Seattle trio Monsterwatch have mastered a seething, aggressive brand of rock that dexterously avoids predictability, zagging when you expect them to zig and producing guitar tones that leave a sulfuric sting. Including some finesse in your justifiably angry sound is always a solid move. Dead Spells channel the dark-hearted, descending-chord-laden attack of Siouxsie & the Banshees with a deadpan panache. Singer Natalia Czajkiewicz's voice is as engrossing as her last name is difficult to pronounce. Goth-rock done without corniness, like that of Dead Spells, is a rare treat.
