Black lips are back ! No, we are not talking about fashion, but some garage, psychedelic rock, and ‘flower – punk’ noise as Black Lips call their genre. Arabia Mountain is their upcoming album, produced by the famous and notable Mark Ronson, who has collaborated with Q tip, Kaiser Chiefs, Duran Duran and Amy Winehouse among others. The release date is June the 7th and you get to have the tracklist, under Vice’s courtesy, too.
‘Modern Art‘ is their lead single, lasting less than 2 minutes, but still managing to transmit the garage message it is supposed to. ‘Go out and get it’ on the other hand is interesting fun in terms of music and video too- actually shot in the Bamahas on the Bruise Cruise rock n roll Festival !
Jared Swilley summarizes “It (the album) doesn’t sound like an arena-rock record, or electro or anything. I just think it’s arranged really well and the sounds are really good. It’s not a radical departure, but I think it’s by far the best thing we’ve ever done.” Let us have a first listen to see if they’ re true..
