Okay, Black Lip's latest, "Modern Art," warrants posting because it has some damn fine fuzz. Though criminally buried in the mix, the repetitive riff is reminiscent of the garage fuzz of yore. But rather than feature the fuzz big in parts and hardly at all in others (ala Count Five's "Psychotic Reactions"), the Black Lips (or whoever produced this) relegate it to a Davie Allan as rhythm player role. Sooo close. I'd love to take control of this band's mixing. "First off, turn up that bass, and the fuzz, now. And, for Christsakes, turn down the vocals, do something with the nasal, turn up the sneer. Okay, let's try that." All that said, it's a fine song.
