Like the Black Keys, but with Bigger Balls
Today I’m introducing a new part of The Vinyl Warhol, my Artist Spotlight. Here’s the breakdown, when I come upon a new artist, from the Orlando area, or that I just think rule, I’m going to let you all know about them. Because, for me at least, finding a new band dive into makes any day ten times better. I want you guys to get in on it too! If you are in a band or find a band you think I should spotlight, send me an email, tweet them to me, or just post a comment. Like I said, I love finding new music, any and all genres apply.
Deap Vally are an all-girl, two-piece blues rock band, from Los Angeles. And let me start by saying these two kick some major ass! “Oh, they’re good for girls!” NO! They are more filthy, and can probably out drink, 90% of the boy bands who call themselves rock stars. Fortunately for all of you, Deap Vally’s debut album Sistronix, comes out on October 8, so now is the perfect time to get into them.
The best way to describe Deap Vally, is dirty. Lindsey Troy’s vocals remind me of ACDC’s Brian Johnson, but with more flavor. Drummer Julie Edwards, says she was heavily influenced by Meg White, of The White Stripes. Aggression-wise I can agree. But, Edwards is a much more technical drummer, not knocking Meg, but simplicity was her thing. In songs like “Gonna Make My Own Money” she comes pounding in, that would scare most male-drummers.
Deap Vally’s music speaks for itself. Just listen, and let me know what you think, is there a band that you think is better than Deap Vally that I should know about? Then speak up. Because it’s “The End of the World”, and I’m going out with Deap Vally.
