A couple of weeks ago DEAP VALLY – guitarist/vocalist Lindsay Troy and drummer/vocalist
Julie Edwards – one of the most exciting and dynamite garage rock acts, and utterly cool and drop-dead gorgeous feminists, of the past 10 years – on record, on stage and offstage, announced details of their farewell after 12 fuzzing and buzzing years.
They’ll say farewell with an extensive tour starting tomorrow in San Diego
and a new vinyl edition of their debut LP Sistrionix, out in Spring 2024.
Following their version of Baby Call Hell from their 2013 debut LP they just
shared their cooking cover of The Rolling Stones‘ Ventilator Blues track from
their 1972 masterpiece LP Exile On Main Street.
The song fits Deap Vally like a glove. The sultry vibe, the mid-tempo
blues swagger, the steamy drive. Feels like it was written for them.
Lindsay Troy‘s vocal performance is off the charts. She gives it her all. Julie Edwards
takes care, as usual, of the robust backbone beat, while sweltering guitars and a bluesy gospel choir complete their astonishing heart-and-soul exploit. I’ll give you two words: fucking awesome. Deap Vally has ignited their final fireworks. I’ll enjoy every minute of it.
Julie came up with the video, edited from 12 years of footage.
