Album Review Deap Lips - Deap Lips2-5 Stars
By each party’s style rubbing off on the other, they’ve also sanded them down.
It’s a wonderful thing when something is greater than the sum of its parts. Unfortunately, Deap Lips - the pairing of power-grunge riff queens Deap Vally and veteran weirdos The Flaming Lips - isn’t one of these such occasions. The supergroup’s self-titled record might feature the dirty rock of the former and the latter’s penchant for synth-led tangents, but by each party’s style rubbing off on the other, they’ve also sanded them down: Lindsay Troy’s growl may sound eerily similar to Alison Mosshart when more melodic (‘Love Is Mind Control’) but we’re treated to little of her howl. That said, the middle one-two of the twisted ‘60s pop of ‘Hope Hell High’ and the Joan Jett playground clap-backery that is ‘Motherfuckers Got To Go’ brings to mind a mutant biker girl group, which is no bad thing.
