From Vice: The Black Lips are kings of the psychedelic garage rock underground. They started the band when they were 15 years old and spent the next seven years touring the world, booking themselves, playing for scraps. Underground parties, basement shows, outlaw festivals, the odd tour opening for Yeah Yeah Yeah’s and Be Your Own Pet, plus three classic albums, countless 7"s, a couple DVDs, and their own seminal garage rock label cemented their reputation. They're now 22 years old, grizzled veterans of the underground, and legends in the scene."
Orlando Weekly on the new album: "Every time the Lips threaten to devolve into total anarchy, a familiar track rings out and their professional side shines. The layered midtempo psychedelia of “Everybody’s Doing It” depends on awkward chord progressions that the guys hit just right, and the cohesion provides momentum for a rocking third act that less mature bands, high on Mexico’s anything-goes vibe, could never pull off."
