Deap Lips a collaboration between Flaming Lips and Deap Vally released their self-titled debut LP Friday, and with it the project’s colorful video for their cover of Steppenwolf’s Easy Rider classic “The Pusher.”

Since the Oklahoma City psych-rockers and the Los Angeles rock duo first announced their collaboration in December, the project has released tracks “Hope Hell High” and “Home Thru Hell.”

“I can’t remember exactly when I became aware of Deap Vally… but let’s say it was sometime just before I saw them play,” Wayne Coyne previously said in a statement of the collaboration, which pairs him and the Lips’ Steven Drozd with Deap Vally’s Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards. “I was in Raleigh visiting with the creator of the World’s Largest Gummy Bear, and so getting to experience Deap Vally was just one more cool thing of many cool things that were happening to me. Deap Vally really rocked the mostly all dude crowd that was there to scream to WolfMother. I met Lindsey that night and we both were glad we met. Deap Vally got my phone number and about a year later hit me up, out of the blue … and invited themselves to come to Oklahoma City and jam with us and maybe come up with a couple songs for their ‘collaboration’ album that they were working on.” Coyne added that their “The Pusher” cover was previously considered for one of Miley Cyrus’ projects with the Flaming Lips but ultimately ended up on Deap Lips.

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.

Their eponymous album will be released on March 13th, 2020.

It’s not the first time The Flaming Lips have collaborated with artists for full albums.

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.
