Do It! (Domino)

Clinic psych-rock garage drone

Clinic builds on the grimy garage drone of 2006's Visitations with an album that minimizes the British quartet's dark, eerie crawls and emphasizes shamanistic, '60s-style psych-rock. The band remains deliciously unhinged on Do It! — only it's more woozy shuffle than serpentine rumble this time around. Sturdy rockers — like the gritty rave-ups "Shopping Bag" and "Winged Wheel" — mix with blues grooves ("Tomorrow") and whirling acid folk ("Mary and Eddie"). There's even a bit of '70s-era blue-eyed soul in "Free Not Free," graced with cooing backing vocals and tinkling cymbals. As cheesy as it sounds, Clinic is just cheeky enough to pull it off. It's a symbolic gesture of Do It!'s freewheeling spirit.
