Up to now, Deap Vally have just been teasing us. Next week (Oct. 8), after a pair of tasty singles and string of blistering live sets on big stages across the globe, the L.A. duo finally releases its full-length debut, ‘Sistrionix,’ and judging by lead single ‘End of the World,’ the disc is a cavalcade of fuzzy guitar and chugging rhythms headed straight for your skull. Clearly, Deap Vally founders Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards are riff doctors of the highest order, and in advance of ‘Sistrionix,’ they put their expertise to good use and made Diffuser.fm this list of the 10 sickest guitar licks in rock history. Scroll down for their picks and explanations.
Nick Zinner has one of the coolest playing styles of all times. He is the master of melody, tasteful simplicity and ingenuity. This riff in this song is one of the greatest album opener of all times.
The main riff in this song is so simple yet so tasty, and the tone of the guitar is like my wet dream. The solo in this song is otherworldly. I can only dream of one day writing something this mystifying.
