Review: Black Lips – ‘Arabia Mountain’

Posted on 07 Jun 2011 at 6:27am

The Black Lips have come to be known for several things over the course of their career, none of which include anything resembling restraint, self-control, or sophistication.

In fact, this snot-nosed street punk squad from Atlanta has slowly built up a cult following with an image based on the exact opposite.

Their now legendary live shows have been peppered with everything from vandalized equipment to indecent exposure to the exchanging of various bodily fluids, while their previous recording efforts were heavily indebted to an inclusive, anything-goes lo-fi aesthetic.

So it seemed like a shock of sorts when the group announced their new album ‘Arabia Mountain‘ would not only feature an outside producer for the first time, but that that producer would be none other than Mark Ronson, the Grammy Award-winning celebrity DJ best known for his retro-slick work with the likes of Amy Winehouse, Christina Aguilera, and Duran Duran.

Perhaps you’ve heard of them. They usually get some favourable adjectives thrown at them – surf garage pop punk California – rearrange as preferred.
