Sleazy Saturday rock today, from Californian punks Death Valley Girls – who are easily the most shit-kicking, ass whipping band I’ve heard all week.
This is glorious stuff – part Ramones, part Velvet Underground, part Sleater Kinney and all attitude. It’s the sound of five badass Los Angelean scuzz merchants thrashing their guitars together, caterwauling a Siouxie-esque howl over the racket and then unleashing it onto the unsuspecting world.
This particular track Electric High is my favourite of theirs so far, full of intricate licks and dirty vocals that work wonderfully well together – and the video is pretty trippy too. But seriously, if you like this then you should definitely check out the rest of these guys’ work. You won’t be disappointed.
