‘Kiss the Void’ With American Lips’ Garage Punk
American Lips split their time between Montreal and Los Angeles, feature Death From Above 1979's Sebastien Grainger and make super catchy rock music, straddling the line between garage and indie. Today, they're premiering debut album Kiss the Void, 10 tracks that can soundtrack anybody's summer. "Definition" drops an ultra-smooth riff that only speeds up as the track moves along. The band fluctuates between speed and cool, slowing things down on the title track and ramping right back up on "I Don't Want to Fight Tonight." This is the kind of garage punk that isn't afraid to get weird. The guitars get nice and strange at certain points, allowing for a varied, rich record with a lot of different ins and outs.
