Peanut Butter Lovesicle isn’t the name you’d expect for a band out of Brooklyn these days, nor does their blues/psyche rock sound call to mind the moustachioed lofts of Bushwick or the gilded parlors of Williamsburg. You might think LA or Akron, Ohio. But everything I first assumed about this young dirty threesome turned out to be wrong.
PBL, as you may wish to refer to them, scored a spot on Gossip Girl for their single “Black Eyed Blues” which was then turned into a video with actor Ed Westwick (and model Julie Henderson). They recorded their new EP, “Dirty Pride,” live in an old church up in the Hudson Valley with Lenny Kravitz/Mick Jagger go-to man, Henry Hirsch.
“Complex originally started as a piano part which is now the intro, it was slower and reminded me of a church melody,” vocalist/drummer Timmy Miller, who penned the song said. “When played faster, with guitar and added parts, it came out like you hear it; a heavy downbeat groover…. it’s a favorite of mine and I can visualize the scene of the lyric when I hear it.”
