The Flaming Lips are no strangers to collaboration, having previously paired with the likes of Neon Indian, Miley Cyrus, and Stardeath and White Dwarfs. Earlier this year they released new record King’s Mouth and a live album called The Soft Bulletin—and clearly show no signs of slowing down in the new year.

Deap Vally Critic Video

Deap Vally are usually known for their brash, gritty sound (as heard on their excellent 2016 album “Femejism”, but they have a somewhat softer side too. “Critic,” is one of their quieter, more melodic songs, is about the hypocrisy inherent in social media and online commentary, though it’s not without attitude either  drummer/vocalist Julie Edwards calls it a “punk lullaby.”

“Critic” is the brand new track from Deap Vally’s new album “Femejism”, out now!

The title of Deap Vally’s second studio album, it’s probably obvious that the California blues rock duo is done with “Feminism”  the subject two women in the band must always expect to address in interviews, the superficial buzzword that sticks to female artists in the 21st century whether they like it or not. Julie Edwards and Lindsey Troy’s frustration at being pigeonholed by ideology is a new shade to Deap Vally. They’ve also forged ahead into fresher sonic territory on their latest album, Femejism, with the help of producer Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs .

Femejism won’t make the comparisons to the Black Keys disappear, but it is heftier and fuller than previous album Sistrionix, showcasing forays into other genres like the unsubtly titled “Post Funk” and “Grunge Bond”. Edwards shines on the former, her galloping drum patterns propelling Troy’s bright, confident riffs. On the latter, the band ride a thrumming guitar line, a rusted razor blade plucked straight out of Nirvana’s repertoire circa Bleach. On the single Gonnawanna”, Deap Vally aim for arenas with airy sweeps of guitar and a simple, triumphant chorus: “I’m gonna! Do! What! I wanna!”

Smile More is from our new album Femejism

“Smile More” is the brand new single from Deap Vally’s forthcoming album “Femejism”, out September 16th 2016

The oxymoronic/pun title of Deap Vally’s second album sums it up. It’s a record stuck in an angry quagmire of annoyance at, and acceptance of, female stereotypes. With ‘Smile More’ very much the centrepiece of the album, lyrics like ‘I am not ashamed I am no-one’s wife, though the idea does sound kind of nice’ encapsulate the committed yet compromised feminism the duo espouses.

The girls do moody and bluesy better than bratty and shouty, and some of my favourite bits on the album are the likes of the grinding, scuzzed-up, stop-start guitars on ‘Bubble Baby’, which sound almost like trying to eke a riff out of a failing motorcycle engine. Deap Vally, the Los Angeles duo comprising of Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards, return with their new album ‘Femejism’ Produced by Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, it features tracks ranging from experimental prog and kraut-rock to good old- fashioned heart-melters and ball-busters

There are songs I don’t much care for on this record too, most of them near the start of it, but as track 6 says “everyone is a fucking critic” and “it’s easy to hide behind your computer”, so maybe I’ll quit while I’m ahead.
