The Black Lips return with their 10th studio effort 'Apocalypse Love',
scorched with their trademark menace, it cryogenically mutates all
recognised musical bases; it spins yarns about vintage Soviet synths,
Benzedrine stupors, coup de' tats, stolen valor and certified destruction,
all set against a black setting sun. Since the turn of the decade the band
have transformed from austere country pioneers, into a set of Lynchian
surrealists, hellbent on recalibrating the history of rock 'n' roll. Singer
and saxophonist Zumi Rosow muses, "It's a weird dance record, one
that reflects the moment that the world's in right now_" 'Apocalypse
Love' is an album that emanates from a dive bar jukebox in the back of
your mind; with a playlist that bends between tub thumping doom-glam,
Plastic Ono singalongs, cocktail-shaken space age pop, Morricone
reverberations and lo-fi outsider acoustic-punk, with mariachi horns,
theremins, drum machines and harmonies filtering through the
infectious melodies. Stand-out number 'Among The Dunes' is an
amorphous platform-heeled anthem, a signature sax-fuelled stomper
filled with trippy swagger.
