Black Lips/Icky Blossoms photo BlackIcky_cover_zpseea634cc.jpg
A unique 45 will be released on Record Store Day, a split effort between Black Lips and Icky Blossoms. The aforementioned Blossoms gang will be covering Siouxsie & The Banshees’ “Arabian Knights” while Black Lips go country by embracing Waylon Jennings’ “Mama Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys” and offering it to a new audience. Before you buy the record, you may listen to both tracks here. If you’re wondering if the picture sleeve features a photo of a monkey revealing its brain, why yes it is.

VIDEO: Bleached’s “Next Stop”


Director Lana Kim shot the new video for Bleached called “Next Stop” as a means to promote their forthcoming album on Dead Oceans called Ride Your Heart. The song is one of those “haul ass”-ers that will make you not think twice about going down a road so you can go down on it. The road, that is.

VIDEO: Black Lips’ “Noc-A-Homa”


If you love that crispy garage rock that is just around the corner from Yardbirds-ville, you’re going to like this new video from Black Lips called “Noc-A-Homa”. The premise of the video may seem funny if you only pay attention to teh first few seconds, but watch it all the way through and you’ll see there is a moral to the story.

VIDEO: Black Lips’ “Modern Art (Live on KEXP)”


Black Lips recently stopped in Seattle, and they made their way to KEXP for an interview and in-studio performance. Now you’re able to see their performance from June 16th with this video of “Modern Art”.
