Hey world! It's been a while hasn't it?

Now, I know I've already plugged this band in a previous post, but that was a shared post and a lot has changed since then.

Well, not that much has changed accept the fact that their album Sistrionix (amazing title) has been released with a great reception from critics and fans alike. This isn't really surprising considering how awesome it is.

At first glance, it would be easy to dismiss Deap Vally as just another NME hyped blues-rock band, but this isn't the case. They are much more than that. They have a little thing called genuine likability, by this I mean you don't want to beat the 'indieness' out of them with a bat after watching an awkward interview on YouTube.

But most importantly, they produce excellent music. They blend old school drum beats, explosive riff and bluesy vocals to create an album which is an instant classic. Also, there are no fillers; every song packs it's own punch, from the explosive headbanger 'Walk of Shame' to the gutsy closer 'Six Feet Under'. Every song on this album has a moment which adds to the experience of the album, whether it's a riff, chorus, bridge or 'ooh'.

The most important thing about this album is that it doesn't take itself too seriously, it is packed full piss-takes (mainly about men) which sets it apart from your average rock album. It makes you want to let go and start rocking out, wherever you are, however old you are.

In short, it's a brilliant album, so get it.
