Black Lips

These guys rocked last night at Bowery Ballroom opening for the Ponys. Atlanta garage rock from the psychedelic side (think Seeds or 13th Floor Elevators) ... their latest is a live record for Vice recorded in Tijuana (see the Youtube clip above). The whole Nuggets worship retro thing is kinda tired in general but something makes these guys transcend it .... the catchy-as-hell choruses ("Dirty Hands") and their sloppy party-band vibe don't hurt. As soon as it gets warm enough out to barbecue I'm blasting this on my roof while I grill and drink Buds, shit will sound awesome.
