New Song from Black Lips

I feel like its really been awhile since I’ve really jammed out to Black Lips, but as the day draws closer to the release of their new record, I find myself revisiting their solid catalog.  The band’s new album, Arabia Mountain, comes out on Vice on June 7th, and so far it sounds pretty promising.  Today they released a new track, aptly titled “New Direction,” and the song is definitely a step towards something different.  For me, the first thing I notice is that the production is much cleaner, and the band seem less like a bunch of punk rabble-rousers. A little bit of focus and things guys could be killer. Personally, I’m finally seeing that Georgia punk sound in their music, and I dig it.
