Black Lips team up with producers Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse) and Deerhunter’s Lockett Pundt for their sixth release to create a tighter and cleaner sound while retaining the garage-rock grit and spirit at the core of the band’s identity. The tracks are razor-sharp, scuzzy, and brief — only two of the 16 are longer than three minutes — and the whole album surges by in a blurred rush of hook-filled adrenaline on first listen. Subsequent spins bring individual tracks to the surface that benefit from some fine flourishes including honking sax breaks, jangly acoustic guitar, whistles, and pounding piano. Their retro approach is playful and infectious on “Family Tree,” “Mad Dog,” “Bicentennial Man,” “New Direction,” and the irresistible “Go Out and Get It.” “Dumpster Dive” has a twisted country-rock feel, “Raw Meat” and “Bone Marrow” are great psych rock rave-ups, and “Spidey’s Curse” finds the band at their most melodic and absurd. In taming some of their wildest impulses Black Lips deliver a crisp and focused batch of songs that is easy to flip for.
The Lips put out some Gems
This Album is SOLID!
Yes there are a few stinkers, but there are 9 really good tracks. 9/17 doesn't sound like a great ratio, but 8 or 9 really good songs on one album is good for any band/musician.
A quick list of the standouts:
1) Family Tree
2) Modern Art
4) Mad Dog (one of my favorites - gotta catch the quick intro sample from the tail end of spidey's curse)
5) Mr. Driver (Another really good one - drums sound really good on this one)
6) Bicentennial Man
8) Raw Meat (A ramones inspired rocker)
10) The Lie
12) Dumpster Dive (a honky tonk/stones inspired tune)
16) You Keep on Running (a slow dark psych jam)
Worth the wait
Like all Black lipsalbums this one sounds different from the others---but,you still know its the Blacklips. The sound is cleaner this time around. Family tree cranks up the album and gives the listeners a good idea whats coming. Bi-centennial man is a stand out track, as is The lie and the great guitar solo at the end. Half the fun of the Black lips is figuring out which old band inspired each song, these guy's know and love music. This album could be the one to expose them to larger crowd of music lovers
Once again the Black Lips don't fail to surprise and impress! It's very new, and a lot different from their other albums. Much cleaner, and crisp than their self recorded previous works, but it does not take away the rugged punkishness of their true Black Lips sound.
Spidey's Curse and Modern Art are so far my favorites on the album.
A great new album from a great Atlanta band. Doesn't beat 200 Million Thousand, but it is still raw, and 100 % Black Lips! Any fan must have.
And Black Lips please don't sell out!!!!
