Brody Dalle Back With New Band

Posted By on Wed, Nov 26, 2008 at 9:45 AM


I was a big Distillers fan back in the day, mostly because lead singer Brody Dalle has such a wicked, ripping set of pipes. Since that band first broke, and then broke up, Dalle's name comes up more for her famous husband (and father of their child) Queens of the Stone Age's Joshua Homme, than for any new projects she's been working on. So it's good to hear that Dalle's not only been back in the studio, but that she has a new band, Spinnerette that puts her back in the rock saddle. The one song the group has available right now, "Valium Knights," sounds like a punker Garbage, with slick production, walls of noisy guitars and near-industrial beats, and Dalle's voice still full of danger and daggers. Check out that first single on the Spinnerette's MySpace page (there's also a debut EP out Dec. 11). -- Jennifer Maerz

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
