Deap Vally’s scuzzy garage rock hits like a rabbit punch to the solar plexus. The L.A. duo, consisting of Lindsey Troy on guitar and vocals and Julie Edwards on drum, recall the deceptively sparse guitar-drum cold cuts of rock revivalists The Black Keys and The White Stripes sonically. But onstage, two boldly sexy women effortlessly oozing ’70s rock star and kicking ass this efficiently is a different sight to behold. After releasing excellent singles like “Lies” and “Gonna Make Money” last year, the band signed a joint deal with Island Records and Communion Records (partly owned by Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons). Their debut LP is set to drop this summer, which will coincide perfectly with the band’s debut on the summer festival circuit, an impressive run that includes gigs at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands.
