Product Description

Product Description

The punk icon's first ever solo release, & the first offering is titled, Meet The Foetus/ Oh The Joy and it s the ambitious, centrepiece of the forthcoming album. It s a song about creating life and was responsible for kicking the whole album process off again for Brody. And if you listen carefully you can hear, good friend Shirley Manson (Garbage) and Emily Kokal (Warpaint) lending a hand on backing vocals.
Brody Dalle spent a year writing, playing, recording and co-producing her first solo album, a riotous blast of punk rock with a pop sheen that storms through ideas about the modern age, triumphing against the odds and even spirituality. She co-produced everything with Alain Johannes (Arctic Monkeys, Them Crooked Vultures, Mark Lanegan) at his studio, and at her and husband Josh Homme's studio Pink Duck, both in California. I've always had a hand in crafting how it's going to sound and hearing it and trying to make that happen. But it's the first time I've put my name on something for production , she says of the release. Amazingly, she wrote all the songs and played almost all the instruments you can hear on the album save for a few incredible guests.

About the Artist

Brody has had a long, wild career in music. It's the only job I've ever had and I love it. In her native Australia, her first band, Sourpuss, got her signed at 15; she later moved to LA and formed The Distillers, becoming pack leader of a band of hardcore reprobates, and spending her 20s touring the world. After that, she released a killer album rife with hooks under Spinnerette and now she returns in fighting form under her own name with her own solo project.

This album certainly doesn't ring reminiscent of her Distillers days but if you have kept up with Brody beyond the break up of the band, you will know that she has changed more than just her vocal style since Sing Sing Death House.
Thankfully she hasn't totally abandoned her raspy screams and offers more of the straight up rock elements from Coral Fang on her latest release.

If you enjoyed the short lived Spinnerette then Diploid Love should still be enjoyable for you. Although this album is much more versatile musically and at times vocally, it lacks the big band, confident elements of Spinnerette.
The only criticism is that the album doesn't feel like it's had it's big moment. You wait for that real showstopper and sadly it never comes. With that being said every song is credible of an 8/10, it's purely that the album doesn't feel like it has a defining moment.

As her live performance still consists of Distillers material and the odd Spinnerette song, that combination largely illustrates the music of the album, although, songs such as Dressed in Dreams and I Don't Need Your Love are something I could never imagine Brody Dalle associated with. Mariatchi trumpets, eighties synth and even minimal krautrock are all on there.
There is no doubt it's a dark album, but it's positive moments shine through and ultimately define the tone.

I love Brody Dalle and have always understand that music changes over time - especially with Brody Dalle and her ever growing maturity with music and love. With that I am currently waiting on my own love for this album to grow... I'm not quite there yet - don't get me wrong, a few songs are very catchy - but it might take a few more listens to make me love it. As yet I still prefer listening to the Spinerrette album (if we are discounting the obviousness awesomeness of The Distillers). I hope Brody Dalle keeps on making music - her uniqueness and grit is addictive.

Good variety of punchy punk songs and more melodic grungy tracks.You can definitely see the influence from Josh Homme. A more grown up Brody but definitely worth a listen.

If your looking for vintage Brody..... this is not it, but this isn't a bad album by anymeans. The girl can still rock and still has that terrific raspy voice, but like time.... she has matured - and this is a mature record. I would give it a 7 out of 10 - worth a listen and worth a purchase. Bought mine thru a second hand dealer within the Amazon network

I love Brody Dalle but I had much higher hopes for this album based on her previous work - prefered Spinerette to the solo stuff.
But saying that there are a couple of killer tracks on here!

I didn't like any of her previous music involvements but this album is great.The musical arrangements are really clever and not cliche ridden for a change, like with the music of the bands she's been in to date. I love the whole album. Let's hope she can do it again. I still find it hard to believe she's an Aussie.
