Having been a fan of both Crocodiles and Dum Dum Girls from the outset, the side project whim of Haunted Hearts seems pretty tailor made for RSTB. The record lies somewhere in the lysergic desert between the two halves of its makers, roping in the goth-pop coos of Dee Dee's past with the buzzing studio wall of guitars that often accompanies Crocodiles' records. The duo seem to have embraced the glam undertones running through Initiation in the accompanying promo and it seems apt, the Warhol n' Alan Vega mix of imagery works with their cracked pink visions here. Both sides of their previous single sit in nicely with the new material and if anything it begs to be a bit longer at only eight tracks, but like a brief and hazy storm the album comes and goes with a humid flash and then dissipates into its own fuzz burnt ether.
