So I got the new Black Lips album Good Bad, Not Evil last week, and I listened to it yesterday. It's pretty good. Keen observers will recognize a few of the songs from their live shows (particularly "Katrina," where the band personifies the 2005 hurricane that devastated New Orleans). Also, the album is only 40 minutes long, and that's counting the minutes-long silence that separates "Transcendental Light" and a hidden track.
But otherwise, I like it. I'm not a Black Lips aficionado, and I didn't hear the band's pre-Vice albums ... though I guess I should revisit their catalog at some point because that's, like, my job. Whatever. I'm digging Good Bad, Not Evil's garagey sound and the '60s-ish primitivism thing. Plus, they even mention "the titties at Magic City," which makes me want to go to Magic City and check out the strippers' titties for myself.
OK, enough jokes. Here's the track listing.
Good Bad, Not Evil comes out Sept. 11 on Vice Records. Here's the video for the album's first single, "Cold Hands."

Yes, 14 is the correct answer. I'll pass your info along to the group's manager,…
That was January of 2007, and they are 21 now, so I'm guessing 14?
