LP, Yellow Vinyl
Fire Records (2023) UK
- Indie Exclusive Yellow Vinyl
Including DLC! Sixth full-length album from the guru's of Atlanta's "flower punk" movement, from the heady daze of 2011 - finally back on vinyl and part of a series of Fire re-issues celebrating 20 years of the legendary garage rock gurus from Atlanta, Georgia. Arabia Mountain was recorded between Brooklyn and Atlanta in 2010, and with the collaborative assistance of celebrated producer Mark Ronson, Lockett Pundt of Deerhunter, and a human skull with a microphone jammed into it.
The production tests the limits of modern amplification, harkening to the full, meaty sound of The Stooges' Fun House or Lola Versus Powerman by the Kinks. Unapologetic southern-fried twang, crunching through the gears with flowers blossoming everywhere.
"Black Lips have crafted a very solid album." - Pitchfork
