I caught wind of The Black Lips when I was checking out nme.com for new music news. I saw Arabia Mountain was streaming in its entirety so I checked it out. I instantly liked this track and here it is the song of the week! The rest of the album is pretty killer too. A video for a really good live version can be seen here.
“You turn around and you don’t know where you’ve been
You look up at the glass dome and the room beings to spin
Let’s go out and find the ocean ’cause I think we need a swim
Turn around, start it over, let’s begin”
