New Black Lips - "Not a Problem"
Atlanta garage-punk stars the Black Lips have a new album due out on February 20 called Los Valentes del Mundo Nuevo (on Vice Records). It's a live recording of a gig in Tijuana with their usual brand of scuzz and swagger, and even (reportedly) a Mariachi band. Seriously. I haven't heard the full record yet, but the good people at Vice have been kind enough to send along a track to sample. Here 'tis:

I'll have more info on purchasing the album and such in the near future. For now, you can pick up their most recent available release, Let It Bloom, from Amazon or other retailers. The 7" of "Oh Katrina" has also recently been repressed by Rob's House Records.
Atlanta folks should know they'll be at The EARL on January 12 backing up The Mighty Hannibal. Tix are available online.
