Since the release of their SPIN-approved album 200 Million Thousand in early 2009, Atlanta quartet Black Lips have been relatively quiet — until now.
The self-proclaimed “flower punks” just dropped “Before You Judge Me” via Adult Swim’s Singles Program. Their song was the fifth in an eight-week series that’s already featured tracks by Madvillain, Matt Sweeney and Bonnie “Prince” Billy, and Washed Out, among others.
“Before You Judge Me” is bound to be another sing-a-long at Black Lips shows. “Before you judge me / Better find somebody else,” the boys sing over bouncing beats and fuzzy guitars. “Before you judge me / Take a look at yourself.”
Back in January, the band told NME that they were recording a new album, which guitarist Cole Alexander said he hopes will be their “most fucked up but successful” release yet. Expect it to drop by fall.
