Hailing from the San Fernando Valley, Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards (who met at a needlework class, think crochet) make up Deap Vally, and deliver probably the most punishing, raw concoction of heavy blues I’ve heard in a while. Keeping it to just a two piece, their minimal getup keeps the gritty guitar licks, brash vocals and swinging rhythms inextricably intertwined into a force to be reckoned with. For now, they’ve just got a bunch of live videos to prove their ferocity but you can also listen and download the single “Gonna Make My Own Money” down below. Stay in the know by checking out their Facebook or Twitter.
