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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
