You may remember Brody Dalle from her ill-fated punk band The Distillers, who broke up about two years ago. Or you may remember Brody Dalle as the brash, outspoken herione to Josh Homme's dashing hero (Queens of the Stone Age). Well Brody is back with a new project called Spinnerette, and a 4-song digital EP "Ghetto Love" ready to roll and available on the band's website and iTunes. Recorded at PinkDuck and 11AD studios in Los Angeles, the EP features guest musicians including Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age), Tony Bevilacqua (The Distillers), and Jack Irons (Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers). While Irons and Johannes don't tour with Spinnerette, Dalle and Bevilacqua are joined live by Nicole Fiorentino, Bryan Tulao, and Dave Hidalgo Jr. Besides playing their share of home-town LA shows to excited fans, the band just played their first UK gig at the 2009 Shockwaves NME Awards Show where they were a big hit. Spinnerette offers us a kinder, gentler Dalle than we have known previously, no doubt brought on by her marriage and recent motherhood. But, there's still her notorious bad-ass attitude at the helm, coupled with a fierce sense of independence. This parlayed into the new project, one where Dalle is in control and calling the shots. Hence the new digital EP, self-released while maintaining her passion and creativity. Look for a full length release some time in May.
