HOT PRESS ALBUM REVIEW: DEAP VALLY

26 07 2013

Here’s a reprint of my review of the ace Deep Valley album that ran in Hot Press a few issues ago.

DEAP VALLY

Sistrionix (Island)

Key Track: ‘Gonna Make My Own Money’

8/10

Release Date: Out Now

ROCK DUO DELIVER DIABOLICALLY GOOD DEBUT ALBUM

Crochet-loving, fuzz-fuelled riff wielding LA scuzz-pop duo Deap Vally deliver their much anticipated debut album this fortnight and the riotous slab of wax is a ridiculously good rock ‘n’ roll romp from start to finish. Bursting at the seams with super-charged primal power and Stooges-infused punk swagger, Sistrionix is a seriously catchy record that boasts hooks by the bucketload as well as plenty of anthems for the post riot grrrl generation (‘Walk Of Shame,’ ‘Bad For My Body’). Musically indebted to 70s and 90s rock, Deap Vally’s sound is as subtle as a punch to the face and singer/guitarist Lindsay Troy’s howls are just the right side of unhinged and highlights include the ferocious ‘Gonna Make My Own Money’ and the sweet and tender (by their standards) album closer ‘Six Feet Under.’
