21 March 2020


Last week DEAP LIPS, the awesome collaboration between surreal fairytale addicts

fabulous self-titled debut album. Without a shadow of a doubt one of the coolest longplayers of the year.

The supergroup launched an intoxicating video clip for one of the tracks, their spaced-
out cover version of ‘THE PUSHER‘, an anti-dope-dealer song by born to be wild rockers Steppenwolf . Open your mind, eyes and ears and fly eight miles high…

Flaming Supergroup DEAP LIPS Surprises With Self-Titled Delirious Debut LP

14 March 2020

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
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…

DEAP LIPS With Crystal Clear Mantra ‘MOTHERFUCKERS GOT TO GO’ From Their Upcoming Album…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

2 March 2020

Only two weeks to go before the utterly cool project DEAP LIPS consisting of
Californian female blues-rock duo DEAP VALLY and frontman Wayne Coyne
and multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd of Oklahoma’s kooky psych rockers
THE FLAMING LIPS will launch their self-titled album.

The stellar supergroup shared two great tracks so far. Riveting ballad
Hope Hell High‘ and cracking Yahama stroke ‘Home Thru Hell’.

And here’s another new one. ‘MOTHERFUCKERS GOT TO GO’ is a mantra-like
stomper with Lindsey Troy‘s repeating the song’s title over and over again with
her threatening vox growing in kick-ass intensity along the way. With what we
heard so far I’m quite confident that an astonishing album is coming our way.
Hell Yeah!

Capture the motherrocking drone right here…

Eleven killer tracks on repeat this past month…

Quote - kopie (2)

Eleven killer tracks played on repeat in JUNE!
A steamy cocktail of lively rippers & sticky grooves
activating all our senses & limbs this past month!
Turn Up The Volume for June’s Knockout Team!

1/ ‘Get Gone’ by DEAP VALLY (Los Angeles, US)
Hundred seconds of blistering grit and spit. A tremendous bang-up. Sultry surf sequences with a dose of nasty The Cramps psychobilly by the coolest 2-piece on this wacko planet!

DEAP VALLY: Facebook

2/ ‘New Dominions’ by JOHNNY MARR (Manchester, UK)
Most fascinating, most audacious and darkly groovin’ track/sound on Johnny Marr‘s new, third and adventurous solo longplayer Call The Comet. Gloomy modern-day glam-rock!


3/ ‘Red Horizon’ by PALM GHOSTS (Nashville, US)
Irresistible riffage and infectious beats escort a highly sticky melody. Cold waves causing warm sentiments. A supreme stroke from their new, excellent longplayer Architecture.


4/ ‘Subsonic Dream’ by THE DARTS (LA/Phoenix, US)
The hottest garage rock fury in ages. Their new crackerjack is steamy, sweaty and sassy.
A brawny banger fueled with sprightly guitar buzz, subsonic keyboards and vocal bravado.

THE DARTS: Facebook

5/ ‘You Don’t Walk Away From Love’ by PEACE (Worcester, UK)
Vibrant guitar pop that makes your day from the very first flashy chord on. Lively and catching earworm from the band’s third album Kindness Is The New Rock And Roll.

PEACE: Facebook

6/ ‘Peaches’ by ANIMAL HOUSE (Brighton, UK)
This red-hot garage rock ripper will make your head spin 360° and will make your feet tap uncontrollably. Deranged stuff, with a Kings Of Leon twist, to go completely bananas to!

Animal House: Facebook

7/ ‘Diagnose Me’ by KANE INCOGNITO (Hamilton, Canada)
A touching folk injected symphony with singer Eric Kane Cherrington‘s soul-stirring vox
in the middle of this harmonious pearl. Crystal clear orchestration and arrangements.


8/ ‘Coming Down’ by GENA ROSE BRUCE (Melbourne, Australia)
The song is “a happy-go-lucky look into self-destruction and total upheaval. Complete with ironic cheerfulness and introspective criticism” says this charismatic Aussie artist. With her hypnotizing voice and striking songwriting potential she’s on her way to something special.


9/ ‘Without You’ by FABRIC BEAR (Edinburgh, Scotland)
Energetic three-headed guitar driven generator creates elevating exhilaration. Their combination of catchy poppiness and electrical tunefulness works perfectly! Bingo!


10/ ‘Firebird 85’ by SONS OF BILL (Virginia, US)
The way this simpatico band combines idyllic harmonies, melodic beauty and sonic romanticism goes way back to the 60s magic of The Byrds. From new LP OH GOD MA’AM 

SONS OF BILL: Facebook

11/ Try (Cross My Heart by SOCIAL STATION (Washington, District of Columbia, DC)
A cloudy symphony for the twilight hours. Heavy-hearted, yet with some spark of hope
at the end of the day/night. The cinematic atmosphere adds drama to the experience.
