Royal City Discography of CDs


Royal City Royal City CD (2009)
CD $16.09 Buy It  Details Limited Edition
Vinyl Record $19.05 Buy It  Details Limited Edition
Royal City music CDs Released five years after Royal City's final show, this career retrospective collects various B-sides, covers, and unreleased songs into one package. Royal City: 1999-2004 may be a fans-only affair, but it's also an appropriate conclusion to the band's duration, featuring 12 tracks of dusky alt country songcraft and earnest vocals. The insight into the band's back catalog is interesting, and the album's most attractive features -- spirited cover renditions of Iggy Pop's "Here Comes Success" and the Strokes' "Is This It?" -- showcase the band's ability to turn patently non-country material into something twangy and fun. There was always a sense of excitement running beneath Royal City's autumnal sound, and this album highlights that undercurrent one final time. ~ Andrew Leahey Recording information: 04/1999-02/2004.

Royal City songs The main focus of Royal City's singer/songwriter, Aaron Riches, was to write the songs on Alone at the Microphone quickly and with as much ease as possible. The end result is a lo-fi recording with fair-quality alternative/punk songs featuring a certain folk influence. Alone at the Microphone is sure to be a pleasurable listening experience, but only after accepting the shabby songwriting work, off-key vocal output, and folk-sounding guitar work. Still, with a few more spins on the turntable, the record is revealed to be chock-full of stunning lyrical expression, colorful and brightly textured percussive statements, and electrifying and somewhat breathtaking overall moodscapes. The production reveals with dexterity the honesty and sincerity in the band's intent, in a record filled with themes about death, vomit, corpses, dogs eating one's liver, etc. Perhaps it is most fitting to describe the lyrical content as possessing a dark mystifying surrealism. At times lush and pretty in their recording quality, the songs only become comfortable after repeated listens. Royal City's Alone at the Microphone is a powerful yet somehow charming statement of how a band can take the darkest of issues and bravely ...
Little Heart's Ease Little Heart's Ease CD (2004)

Royal City CD discography On Little Heart's Ease, their third album and first for Rough Trade, Royal City continues in the direction of Alone at the Microphone but opts for a fuller, cleaner, more polished sound. At times, more polished means too polished: occasionally, Aaron Riches' vocals sound a little airless, and the album doesn't feature as much unique instrumentation as Alone at the Microphone did. However, ...
