Black Lips release Arabia Mountain and new Daytrotter session

New album, Arabia Mountain, in rotation on Grow Radio

Yesterday, June 7th, Black Lips’ sixth and greatest full length Arabia Mountain had it’s long awaited release date, quickly working it’s way to the #1 spot on InSound and garnering a mounting avalanche of rave reviews, including a spot in Spin Magazine’s 24 Best Summer Albums. To mark the occasion perennial tastemakers Daytrotter have released a four-song session taped while the band were at SXSW this past March, available for free download from the website (link below). Possessed by an unparalleled ambition to entertain anything that moves, the band, already two months into their expansive world tour, are kicking off another run of tour dates tomorrow that extends into August, culminating with an appearance at Chicago’s monolithic Lollapalooza festival.




“The band’s songwriting skills are as plain as day.” – SPIN

“Arabia Mountain not only emerges as the Lips’ best-sounding record, but arguably their finest album to date.”- PASTE

“The Lips’ catalog is exhaustingly long, but Arabia Mountain is a fine reassertion that its talents extend far beyond running from venue security” – LA TIMES
