At the end of last year came the startling news that female Californian blues-rock
turbo DEAP VALLY and frontman Wayne Coyne & multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd
of Oklahoma‘s wayward and Wizard of Oz psych rockers THE FLAMING LIPS teamed
up for a collaboration called DEAP LIPS.
Yesterday the surprising supergroup unleashed their magical, self-titled debut album sounding overall like The Flaming Lips fronted by Deap Vally‘s mesmeric vocalist Lindsey
Troy whose magnetic voice never resonated that magical and arresting. She takes the many otherworldly Lips lullabies to a spellbinding level. Check outstanding musings
‘Shit Talkin‘, ‘Hope Hell High’, ‘Love Is A Mind Control‘, ‘Home Thru Hell‘ and the captivating, psychedelic reflection ‘There Is Know Right There Is Know Wrong‘ and you’ll know exactly what I mean. Add cutting mantra ‘Motherfuckers Got To Go’ and trippy synth tunes ‘Not
A Natural Man’ and ‘One Thousand Sisters With Aluminum Foil Calculators’ and what you
get is a most arresting record for the midnight hours. Delirious transcendence! Top!
Get intoxicated right here…
