Los Angeles rock duo Deap Vally dropped their second LP, Femejism, back in 2016 and followed it up with an "unplugged" edition earlier this year. The band has spent the year on the road playing festivals and touring with musical heroes Blondie and Garbage.
On tour, the duo, made up of Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards, formed a special relationship with the legendary bands, who have encouraged them to "keep going". It was certainly a grounding experience for Deap Vally who has already worked with personal hero Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on their last album, and it doesn't seem like it'll be long till others start recounting their experiences of playing and collaborating with these L.A. rock stars.
We caught their recent set at Seattle's Bumbershoot festival, and ARTISTdirect's Christopher Friedmann spoke with Lindsey Troy about that recent touring with legends, the differences in making an acoustic record, and what advice she'd give to other musicians.
