Editors’ Notes

Anyone wondering how a garage rock band can sustain a career nearly 50 years after that sound had its commercial heyday should look at Atlanta’s Black Lips. They've been staying true to their instincts without losing their identity, 15-plus years since they first turned on the fuzzbox. Over the past decade, they’ve taken their raunchy brand of real rock ’n’ roll to people in all parts of the world. They let their previous album, Arabia Mountain, be manicured by Mark Ronson, while Underneath the Rainbow is produced by several men, including The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney, The Dap Kings’ musical director Tommy Brenneck, and the band’s longtime collaborator Ed Rawls. “Drive-By Buddy” opens sounding like The Monkees’ “Last Train to Clarksville” being played by a better-than-average band on a Nuggets collection. “Smiling” preens like an early Strokes tune, and “Dorner Party” rattles with glorious random imprecision. “Justice After All” further enjoys a primitive approach. The Black Lips let producers make superficial alterations, but the band never lose the heart of their sound.

Customer Reviews

Give it a few listens

This album is very rewarding, it's different than other Albums the Black Lips have released in the past, so it's not what I was expecting at first. I'm not big on country; but it seems that is the direction they went with this album, and I love it.

What a disappointment

Loved the last record. Can't even believe its the same band. Nothing to see here. Move along before you're bored to death.

Who else is doing it like this?

Nobody! These grooves are rock, punk, psych, even a bit'a countra. The lyrics are simple and fun, and yet some hit home. Experimental, yes, different, yes, Black Lips--> original. Through and through.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Playing garage-flavored punk rock with a Southern accent, a messed-up and bluesy undertow, and the gleefully destructive impact of a 15-year-old with a bag of firecrackers, the Black Lips are an Atlanta-based combo who, after their debut in 2000, soon developed a reputation as one of the Peach State's wildest bands. The Black Lips consisted of Cole Alexander on lead vocals, guitar, and harmonica, Ben Eberbaugh on lead guitar, Jared Swilley on bass, and Joe Bradley on drums, when they released their...
