On their new album Underneath The Rainbow, Atlanta garage-rock warriors the Black Lips, once known for stunts like drinking their own piss onstage, are mellowing out considerably. The band co-produced their new album with the Black Keys’ Patrick Carney, and early tracks like “Boys In The Wood” and “Justice After All” have a bit more Southern boogie-rock influence than we’re used to hearing from these hellions. And right now, you can stream the entire new album at Soundcloud (via Noisey).
Underneath The Rainbow is out 3/18 on Vice. Also, Pitchfork reports that the band will be playing what they call “scented shows” on their forthcoming tour, with each event supposedly made to echo “ocean,” “cedar,” “moon,” “denim,” “squid ink,” “fire,” and “semen (if the man only ate fresh plums for about a week).”
