Very possibly a bad acid flashback in the original Ringo Starr's mind, the Texas-based rockers Ringo Deathstarr play spacey, psychedelic indie-rock that has more in common with My Bloody Valentine and the Jesus & Mary Chain than the Beatles or the All-Starr Band. What's refreshing is that the band has the look to match their sound. Their homemade videos of playing on the beach ("Kaleidoscope") and wiggling around balloons in a green room ("Some Kind of Sad") could fit comfortably on VH1 Classic next to that '90s video of the Pixies slowly running down a quarry. With Vandelles, Heaven, and Dead Leaf Echo.
