When she was a teenager, Deap Vally singer-guitarist Lindsey Troy worshipped one rock star above all others: "This may sound bad, but it was Courtney Love," she says. "She was so raw and badass." Now, with drummer Julie Edwards, Troy is making some major noise of her own. The L.A. duo's fuzzed-out riffs have landed them choice spots from Bonnaroo to Lollapalooza – and gotten Troy a lot more attention from dudes. "I take it with a grain of salt," she says. "That's part of the magic of rock & roll: It casts spells on people."
