Black Lips defined themselves early on with riveting music that breathed new life into garage rock. So let’s just get this out of the way: 2005’s Let It Bloom is still their best album. That’s not meant as a slight to their later work, but rather an acknowledgement of just how thrilling the early, ragged material could be: the way they screamed just after the intro of Not a Problem ; their hypnotizing, fluid cover of Jacques Dutronc’s Hippie, Hippie, Hoorah ; the swooning, filth-caked ballad Dirty Hands . Heard in isolation, it didn’t work, but it sounds great in the context of Underneath the Rainbow. Coming after a dull patch, it’s a sudden injection of life, with a thoughtful and well-paced arrangement.

The Black Lips are releasing their first LP since 2011's Arabia Mountain, and they're streaming the whole thing two weeks before its release. The band started recording Underneath The Rainbow last year, which was co-produced in Nashville by Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney. Additionally, according to an interview with Rolling Stone, Mastodon's Brent Hinds contributed lead guitar and pedal steel parts, while Daptone Records players filled in some horn parts.
Atlanta's Black Lips were notorious in their early days for on-stage vomiting and nudity, although they have now quietly clocked up seven albums which fall somewhere between a celebration and pastiche of garagey rock. Opener Drive-By Buddy applies the electric twang of the 1966 Rolling Stones to a tune similar to the Monkees' Last Train to Clarksville.
They do that without cleaning up the waters too much. The twelve songs are all rather upbeat, simple and feature great guitar work. Prime examples of this are Boys in the Woods and Justice After All.
Oh, but they're still those same old rowdy slacker fuckwits right? Please say yes!! Black Lips seem to have been stuck with the juvenile tag, and have always operated as though they were the house band for a party they were just following. Underneath the Rainbow may very well be the sound of a band finding their core sonic identity. It certainly continues the growth found on Arabia Mountain but introduces a new element: consistency. The last three tracks on Underneath the Rainbow especially feel born wholly out of Black Lips' personality and style, not owing a particularly heavy debt to any one influence. The choruses are more anthemic, the swagger more off-the-cuff, the lyrics more personal and heartfelt. what rewards you bring.
