Black Lips – Underneath the Rainbow

Though they are deep into their career – spanning twelve years and seven albums – these guys still sound as rough around the edges (in a good way) as they ever have. Time has not smoothed them out. Garage music tinged with a little sixties psychedelic influence has always been their modus operandi. To remain as such they have learned to play by certain of the rules. Meaning that they do release music that uses the modern day tricks of the trade. They do that without cleaning up the waters too much. The twelve songs are all rather upbeat, simple and feature great guitar work. Prime examples of this are “Boys in the Woods” and “Justice After All”. The strong tracks do not end there as “Make You Mine”, “Funny” and “Smiling” make this an album worth buying.
