Black Lips “Modern Art” Video

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Following “Go Out and Get It!,” the music video for “Modern Art” offers the second taste from the Black Lips’ forthcoming album Arabia Mountain. It’s going to be interesting to see how influential Mark Ronson was in terms of guiding the LP’s production, but the first two tracks seem to suggest that the theme which runs throughout the recording might simply be: “tightness”. Sure, there are set to be 16 songs on the record, but thus far they’ve been amazingly compact. This might not exactly entice fans who specifically latched onto the freak-out psych of the band’s last album, 2009′s 200 Million Thousand, but returning to a far more basic blueprint isn’t a bad idea as far as I’m concerned. Arabia Mountain is set to be released June 7 via Vice.
