Atlanta underground cult heroes The Black Lips new LP, ‘Sing In A World That’s Falling Apart’ is out today via Fire Records & Vice Records.
Boasting an unapologetic southern-fried twang, the album marks the quintet’s most pronounced dalliance with country music yet, with a clang and harmony that is unmistakably the sound and feel of the Black Lips.
A powerhouse of angst wrapped in traditional melodies, it’s a wild rumble fusing their musical journey from garage rock, punk and psychedelia into a mind-blowing hybrid of cosmic broken country, fragmented Paisley Pop and heart-on-the-sleeve back porch reportage, all delivered with vengeance in their eyes.
“What Black Lips do so well is tease the horror out of wholesomeness and recast golden-age rock’n’roll in a strange, discomforting light” Pitchfork
Returning to their roots, Black Lips headed into Laurel Canyon’s newly reopened legendary Valentine Recording Studios recording studio, and with the help of engineer and co-producer, Nicolas Jodoin, they recorded direct to 2″ tape.
This country-rock infused gem can be enjoyed as a Standard LP, Limited Edition Red LP Die-Cut Heart and CD.
