The Los Angeles quartet Death Valley Girls makes the kind of spaced-out rock that would be right at home in a film on the bottom half of a 1970s drive-in double bill. In interviews, they’ve talked about how much they dig dark auras, psychic readings, demonic possessions and the Manson family; you can hear it in the music, too, which channels the rawest proto-punk and instills it with a come-hither purr of menace. Glow in the Dark, the band’s most recent full-length release on the cultishly adored Burger Records label, is all knotty guitars and cooing girl-group-style vocals that turn into Iggy Pop-like snarls at the flick of a fuzz pedal. You’ll have images of go-go girls, gutter punks and Russ Meyer films dancing in your head.
