The White Stripes and the Black Keys are most obvious and superficial reference points for any new guitar-and-drums duos, but Deap Vally doesn't exactly shy away from those comparisons. The twosome's Sistrionix is full of enough fuzzed-out, bluesy garage-rock licks that the similarities are hard to ignore. But while the two older bands eventually grew into that whole maturity thing, the women in Deap Vally are still all spit and snarl, which might seem a little at odds with the band bio nugget that says the members met in a crochet class. After the pair plays Portland, the band's next biographical curiosity comes next month: playing on a cruise ship with Lynyrd Skynyrd. MATTHEW W. SULLIVAN
