WHO?

Lindsay Troy (guitar, vocals) and Julie Edwards (drums) were once struggling musicians battling their way through the tough underground of the LA music scene, unaware of the other’s existence. For an explosive garage-punk driven rock duo, it’s somewhat ironic that something as placid as knitting is what finally brought these two together (they met in a crochet class that Julie was teaching). The two bonded further over their love of guitar centric blues-rock, and Deap Vally was formed.

WHAT?

The duo’s new debut album Sistrionix is out now and in a fairly unique move, the band wrote most of the album independently from each other.  “We were sending each other ideas, emailing each other voice memos and stuff” says Lindsay.

After being reunited in LA the two recorded the 12-track album with producer Lars Stalfors (The Mars Volta).  Listen to the new album Sistrionix now on Deezer.

WIN: PORTUGAL. THE MAN | EVIL FRIENDS

Packing plenty of excitement and quirkiness into their dazzling mix of rock, pop, psychedelia, and electronica, Portugal. The Man’s work is as imaginative and catchy as it is immaculate and daring.

The band has essentially released an album every year since their debut in 2006, which seems like an impossible task considering the constant touring, but here they are with “Evil Friends.”  The new album is as energetic and highly caffeinated as you would expect the band members to be and the inclusion of Danger Mouse behind the production desk takes Portugal. The Man to a place we haven’t seen before.
Stream “Evil Friends” on Deezer

Portugal. The Man return to Australia for Splendour In The Grass sharing the bill with HAIM which is very interesting when you consider two member of the sister act feature on the track ‘Purple, Yellow, Red and Blue.’ 

To celebrate Portugal. The Man‘s return to our shores, we are giving away signed copies of Evil Friends!  Simply fill out the form below telling us which two Splendour acts you would love to see collaborate?
