Some Ghetto Love from Brody Dalle

Rock babe Brody Dalle is back, with her first official release since the Distillers called it quits in 2006.

Brody and her new band, calling themselves Spinnerette, released the Ghetto Love EP Dec. 11, via the band’s Website. For fans of the Distillers, this disk is a big departure. One listener review went so far as to compare Brody to Pink. I can’t go that far, but the music is much more – I hate to say “commercial” – but, well, the music is more commercial than the Distillers.

The songs and rhythms are catchier than her previous work, no doubt somewhat influenced by Brody’s marriage to Queens of the Stone Age front man Josh Homme.

Former Distillers guitarist Tony Bevilacqua played on Ghetto Love, along with drummer Jack Irons, and QotSA guitarist Alain Johannes. In an interview posted on UK Website Teletext, Brody said she plans on using different musicians when she tours. “Spinnerette isn't a band,” she said. “It’s me and whichever musicians I want to work with at the time.”

I like the EP (esp. "Valium Knights"), and I am a big fan of early Distillers, esp. Sing Sing Death House. It does sound a bit like QOTSA, but that's not a bad thing.
