The Deap Vally girls could only come from California. You just can't get away with hot-panted hard-rock these days if you hail from anywhere else. And don't let their attire (or lack of) force you into stereotyping this primitive blues-rock duo either, for Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards are most definitely for real. Every track on Sistrionix is attacked like they're having the times of their lives - it's just that it gets warm on stage, alright.

As eye-catching a girl-girl combo then as comes to mind, Troy and Edwards nevertheless let their songs do most of the talking. And, in Troy, Deap Vally has a true rock star in its midst, wheeling, for example, between a creepy croon and full-blown Robert Plant wail on last year's empowering single "Gonna Make My Own Money". Providing variety, the classy closer "Six Feet Under" later casts her into simmering Janis Joplin country, fraying the template with passages of outright distortion.

"Come on everybody. Listen up." So Troy begins the killer "End Of The World" and pay attention you will come the track's buzz-saw axe-work and Edwards' muscular drum part - there are certainly worse ways to embrace apocalypse. Suffice it to say then that if the pair had you at hello, you'll be head over heels soon after. The booty-shaking jams just keep coming, tumbling into one another.

The chugging "Creeplife" is thrown down like a gauntlet. The sludgy single, "Lies", squalls and squawks likes Karen O preaching on the subject of girl power. "Bad For My Body" could be QOTSA as tackled by the original Black Sabbath WAGS.

Fantastic album. Never heard of them until last week when my daughter was playing their music on guitar hero. Reminds me of the black keys with a touch of Sabbath. The themes and tone aren't much like Sabbath but it reminds me of Sabbath simply because it is packed with epic riffs!

Its a grower! On my fourth listen now and it gets better every time round.

Two women, a drum kit, a gnarly guitar and some serious attitude. Hard-hitting stripped down blues rock, raw and "in your face" as they say. They also say the sound is similar the White Stripes. "They" seem oblivious to the fact that the lead singer of the White Stripes is male, not the snarling but very female Lindsey Troy. Big, big difference!

Typically of this album, opening track "End of the World" seemed a peculiar choice of start track, featuring some slightly discordant guitar playing yet on repeat listens it just seems to fit right. Second track "Baby I Call Hell" I've heard a multitude of times now through their recent TV appearances so it just gets me to familiar territory. Throughout the album, remorseless driving distorted guitar is at the heart of everything but there's enough variation to prevent monotony. The almost singalong qualities of "Walk of Shame", a few spoken lines in"Lies", the swirling of "Women of Intention", punching vocal delivery in "Raw Delivery". Last official track "Six Feet Under" is inevitably the gentle track of the eleven, nearest you're going to get to a ballad but even that has the wails, growls and fierce guitar.

Contrary to what the Amazon CD description currently says Track 10 does not contain the hidden track Spiritual. Track 11 however has 3 and a half minutes of guitar&drum free singing of an atmospheric track whose lyrics don't appear to include the word "Spiritual" as far as I tell. Another of tracks where at first listen I wasn't that taken, Julie Edwards' contribution initially seeming to jar, but by the third time round it was just another track that had cast its spell. Its a song that forces images in your head.

For a guitar and drums duo format, these two manage to make a hell of a noise. Very traditionally blues rock influences, especially on Lindsey Troy's raw vocals. Listen a bit more, and you'll notice Julie Edwards' lower- and purer-pitched voice harmonising beneath the surface. She only gets much of an outing in her own right on the acapella track hidden after the end of Six Feet Under, the only pair of tracks to go at anything less than pretty much full tilt. A sense of humour is buried in the lyrics to several numbers, such as Creeplife and Lies, although you might have to listen several times to catch it. White Stripes and Black Keys have been mentioned by several reviewers as comparators and, more recently, Royal Blood carry the same torch on, so you'll have a good idea of what to expect. This isn't the most original music in the world, but what they do, they do well and with a lot more energy and feeling than many could muster. Heavily riff-based rock, with a few solo guitar flourishes, and most tracks follow a similar format. Raw Material and Woman of Intention fall a bit below the standards of the other tracks, while Six Feet Under stands out by allowing the guitar and vocals to stretch out a bit. Opener End of the World is probably one of the great headbanging numbers of all time, with the verses dissolving into the deranged string-bending fury of the singalong chorus. The long-term problem for Deap Vally will be whether they can manage to transcend what is quite a limiting format without the addition of at least a bass guitar. Ignore the rock chick image. They are better than that. Enjoy this for what it is: the ideal thing to put on to exorcise a bad day at work.
