Album: Deap Valley, Sistrionix, Universal


Don’t let the hipster hype scare you away.

Deap Vally, the San Fernando Valley duo of Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards, deal in dirty indie blues – think Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Gossip, White Stripes, Led Zep – and Sistrionix (fantastic title) is a hugely enlivening 41 minutes of deliciously distorted vocals, instantly memorable fuzz-up guitar riffs, handclap breakdowns, and vicious put-downs of cheating lovers and sleazebags. You’ll want to stick it on immediate repeat.
