Black Lips Give Us a Ditty
I’ve always enjoyed the Black Lips, but I have to admit, sometimes their ramshackle approach can make a full length listen difficult. Surely this new track exemplifies the band’s knack for wrapping their sound around warm melodies; it’s almost just a jangling folk pop tune…and that’s definitely fine by me. Perhaps it’s unexpected in the long run of their musical approach, but looking forward it might offer a glimpse at where the band is going. We get to hear this number on a new 7″ with my favorite ladies, The Coathangers, when they release a double-sided split on November 13th via Suicide Squeeze Records.
