Royal Headache, a fearless foursome from Sydney, Australia, would have fit in just fine in the south of France. The band's self-titled debut, out May 8, is an unabashed throwback to an era full of blue-eyed men copping and caffeinating the moves of Motown and Memphis, when rock stood in awe of soul music's ecstasy and agony. The album even sounds 40 years old, thanks to the raw production of Eddy Current Suppression Ring's Mikey Young.
