After one album produced by Mark Ronson and enough on-stage vomiting to last a century’s worth of primary school Christmas pageants, Black Lips are taking the careers that energetic punk and exposed pricks built to the next level. With a new album called Underneath The Rainbow, produced by Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, out via Vice on March the 18th.
The band are six albums into their history, and judging from “Boys In The Wood,” Underneath The Rainbow will provide dynamic new opportunities to compare their sound to brown liquors, straight and neat. The lick and slap of the guitar slops around the surreal tales of wild (and drunk) boys in the woods. The comradery is apparent in the sing-along hook, and fortifies the music as it progresses from delirious jank still to backwoods symphonic.
