When Ratboys, on "Printer's Devil", play their upbeat, easy gait indie rock (what used to be college rock) they are a pleasant, though slightly indistinguishable, listen. The semi-jangle guitars and double kick rhythms are straight out of the indie DIY manual. It's when they soften it up and lean toward Mazzy Star brooding they lose steam and it's easy to drift off. Blend Giant Drag with Charly Bliss and a dash of Juliana Hatfield and you have Ratboys' general vibe. A vibe that can be totally enjoyable within the right environment and with the right pacing.
