Believe me, I know: There’s no dearth of groovy, throwback psych rock on today’s touring rock ’n’ roll circuit. And by its very definition, nothing “throwback” or “retro” or “revivalist” can be truly, utterly original. Therefore, as long as you can stand ’60s-cribbing aesthetics — hazy production, vaguely Eastern psychedelic noodling and a bobbing, left-of-center take on pop music, for instance — it’s song quality that makes a good retro-psych band. It could be said that Seattle’s Night Beats sound like a somewhat more proficient Seeds — especially frontman Lee Blackwell’s pained howl, which is eerily similar to that of late, great Seeds singer Sky Saxon. But as Night Beats’ 2011 eponymous debut wears on, from the dangerously loose and catchy “Puppet on a String” to the meandering freak-out of album closer “Little War in the Midwest,” something becomes apparent: Night Beats isn’t merely attempting to capture and rebottle that far-out “Spirit of the ’60s” thing that bands like Electric Prunes and 13th Floor Elevators seemed to do so well. It’s almost as if they honestly, genuinely believe the current year is 1967. Please, for the love of God, don’t tell them it isn’t. Locals and fellow psychedeliophiles D. Watusi and Ranch Ghost open.
