Black Lips – Starting Over

MP3: The Black Lips – “Starting Over” from 200 Million Thousand, due February 24 on Vice.

Sounds like Brian Jonestown Massacre doing one of their early Rolling Stones pastiches. Minus the sense of evil and danger. That, of course, is not a bad thing. In fact, it’s pretty good. Still, let’s hope the album has more muscle than this single. Good Bad Not Evil was a highlight of 2007.

The band is running a video contest through February 15, and the winning director will receive some signed schwag.
