All-girl quintet The Ace Of Cups blew some weird R&B air through the Frisco Bay while their Quicksilver boyfriends were toning up with a more psychedelic version of West Coast acid blues. These ballroom babes swapped duties on tracks like “Pretty Boy” and “Boy, What’ll You Do Then?”, but it’s the primitive gothic architecture of “Stones” and “Glue” that separate Denise Kaufman, Mary Gannon et al from the blowsier likes of Cold Blood and the Airplane. A genuine Haight-Ashbury treasure trove with a poetic, punky DIY edge and all the garage-girl guts you can stomach. Fill yer cups, girls.
