Product Description

Product Description

A stunningly noisy eclectic 7 song debut from Los Angeles' Scarling. Think the perfect mixture of My Bloody Valentine, Black Sabbath and Babes In Toyland in Robert Smith's garage. Features cover art by Mark Ryden and single Band Aid Covers The Bullet Hole. Sympathy For The Record Industry 2004.

About the Artist

One look at Scarling might suggest that they're a new batch of goth-inclined neo-hipsters ready to sell themselves to America's disaffected youth. However, while a spin of their debut full-length, Sweet Heart Dealer, confirms that legions of mopey kids should go for this big-time, it's also clear that this band has an awful lot more going for them than the surfaces might suggest. While dominated by the massive guitar sounds of Christian Hejnal and Rickey Lime, Scarling's songs display a canny pop sensibility that bobs just beneath their aural surface, and former Jack Off Jill vocalist Jessicka's voice seems to have gained some welcome depth and texture in the context of her new band. Hejnal and Jessicka have cited Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine as key influences on Scarling's approach, and it shows — rather than going for standard-issue Marshall-stack crunch, Hejnal and Lime utilize feedback, drones, and floating masses of overtones to give these seven songs an attack that could be described as a loving pummel that embraces as it bruises. And you can actually sing along with 'Band Aid Covers the Bullet Hole' without hurting yourself, which is no small feat. Sweet Heart Dealer is a remarkably accomplished debut from a band with very real potential. " --Mark Deming

I first heard Scarling. on their website, scarling.net, last May. After listening to just the first verse & chorus of 'Band Aid Covers The Bullet Hole' i knew Scarling. were gonna be something special, and i was eagerly awaiting the release of 'Sweet Heart Dealer'.And when i heard it, it was even more amazing than i expected. Lets get one thing straight, Scarling. are NOT the new Jack Off Jill. They're better. Jessicka herself describes the 2 bands in comparison to eachother as: 'jack off jill was a petting zoo pony.scarling. is like a flourescent zebra with pink stripes running at top speed.' And i can't help but agree. From the beginning of 'Last Day I Was Happy' to the end of 'Can't' you can see that scarling. are gonna be HUGE. The sound differs from JOJ, the vocals are quieter, more dreamy. No more screaming and swearing by Jessicka, but her voice still sounds awesome. The lyrics are excellent ('Stop this nonsense my dear,I know you need attention,So slash an artery!' <3), the guitars screech, drums pound..and the result is a sound unlike anything else ive ever heard. The songs, particularly my favourite, 'Alexander The Burn Victim' put you into a trance, and will haunt you well after SHD is over. The only fault with this CD is that theres only 7 tracks.Apart from that, it's a musical masterpiece.

I first fell in love with Jessicka's voice the second I heard Jack Off Jill's "Sexless Demons and Scars". She may not be screaming expletives any more, but her vocals still pierce straight to the heart.
Don't buy this expecting it to be Jack Off Jill's third studio album: this is something new, something different; something to remind us that we all have scars, and they don't make us any less beautiful.
Buy this to remind you why you love music. That's what it's done for me.

I first heard of Scarling from being a fan of Jack off jill and you know i wanted to see what Jessicka was doing now.The first song I heard from Sweet heart dealer was "The last day i was happy" and could of been put on "Clear hearts grey flowers". Ironcially this is the first track.I really loved it and couldnt stop listening to it,I needed something different to listen too and Scarling really did it for me."Bandaid only covers the bullethole" is a catchy number with sweet little verses and then a stroppy chrous that youll sing to.No matter how hard you try not to you will be singing "Say hello to my little freind"."Crispin Glover" is a really nice song with really haunting guitars and great lyrics like "That they're laughing at us,They're not laughing with us And I think the jokes on me".Next is "Alexander the burn victim" which i find is a really sad song and its beautiful."Baby Draculas" a nice sickly sweet song and has nice wavy guitars and cute vocals."Black horse riding star" is an amazing song and is angsty and Rotten.The song sort of calms down in the middle by a little spoken word poem by Jessicka but rages up again."Cant Halloween Valentine" is a great song to end the album and although Sweet heart dealer has only seven tracks its more than enough for your appetite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, I wish Jessicka's beautiful voice was dominate. 2 April 2004
By Norbert Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Someone called this CD "music genius" then gave it 4 stars, guess God would have to deliver it to get 5 stars. I bought Jack Off Jill's "Clear Hearts Grey Flowers" and I fell in love with the music and Jessicka's incredible voice. I seen lots of references to this new band of hers "Scarling" and decided to buy it. I like it very much but I do wish Jessicka's voice wasn't so drowned out by the music because it is truly beautiful. I am giving this CD 5 stars but hope that if Scarling makes another CD it will allow the heaven sent voice of Jessicka to shine through a little more. I will continue to follow this band and hope for more good things. Most of what I see as Goth music is just hard rock to light metal. I liked the Ameilia Terry CD I bought and consider it true Goth and some of the Collide CD "Some Kind of Strange". This Scarling is what I would call hard rock to light metal music and I am very impressed with this band. I have always found that I favor female vocalist over males but I have much of both in my music collection. I really can't compare Scarling to another band because they have a unique sound that I know will grow on me. I just got this CD yesterday so I've only heard it a couple times at this point. I think it was money well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars scarling. 17 Feb. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Feedback noises call you in like the scream of a mechanical little girl lost in a strange Wonderland. The distorted bass is the white rabbit that invites you in further, as you begin to hear the red queen speak to those who choose to go wherever she may lead you. The quiet atmosphere vanishes quickly into an explosion of noise and words that would wilt any painted-red rose.
The wait was certainly worth it, as the music on the album is literally flawless in every way.
The album balances between heavy louder songs and softer mellow songs - while all still keeping that "edge" that makes them all flow into each other perfectly. The music is heavy, noisy, and loud - totally complimenting Jessicka's voice. All the instruments blend together to make a thick wall of sound that is sure to entrance and inspire many.
Individual Song Comments:
The Last Day I Was Happy (3:49) - I think this is a great album opener. The chorus plays on 2 certain words that rhyme, Jessicka's scream after the first chorus gives goosebumps.
Band Aid Covers the Bullet Hole (3:26) - I think this track has alot less "texture" than the rest of the album, extremely catchy.
Crispin Glover (3:18 ) - My personal favorite on the album. I found myself singing the catchy chorus of the song as I was out walking my dog. Described by a certain succexy as "cure-esque"... I agree.
Baby Dracula (3:54) - I think would sound great live (). Once again I love the textured guitars.
Alexander the Burn Victim (6:00) - I think this is the saddest song on the album lyric-wise. ("And when he dreams I know he is ok / Cause when he dreams, he's someone new... It's all for love" ) It's starting to really grow on me. One of my favorites.
Black Horse Riding Star (5:31) - The heaviest track on the album. I really love the guitar.
Can't (7:21) - The intro of this song is very My Bloody Valentine, slow and fragile throughout, but picks up pace towards the end - Finishing the albums journey off.
Total night and day from Jack off Jill (musically NOTHING alike). I'd choose scarling. if I had to pick though - Better, and more interesting musicians!
Other Notes: Sitting here with the album playing in my laptop, the cd slowly heats up and the disk art gives off a mixture odor of both cinnimon and vanilla. How odd!

5.0 out of 5 stars ze scarling. 8 Mar. 2004
By Kanyl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
All the waiting has paid off ! This debut cd from Scarling is the most beautiful and extraordinary music I've ever heard ...and that is not enough to describe how I feel about it . everytime you listen to it ; your gonna hear new things you've never noticed the first time you listened to it . A beautiful piece of work when it comes both to vocals , drums , guitars and bass . The lyrics can make anybodys heart melt .
The last day I was happy - Oh my , this is sucha great opening track and one of my fav songs . I can picture them play this song live and make it sound just as great as it sounds on the cd . Picture art-rock mixed with lots of noise and haunting vocals and you are halfway there .
Band aid covers the bullet hole - Well , everyone has said things about this track . I dont know what more I could add . Except that I understand why they released this track as their first single . very catchy .
Crispin Glover - Really lovely track with lots of swirling guitars , smooth vocals and you get a feeling of both tragedy and beauty while listening to it .
Alexander the burn victim - Another fav song of mine . It's one of the most beautiful songs ever written , very calm and soothing. This is how it feels to be heartbroken and drowning in sadness but gives you a stray of light during the whole song. The lyrics are so extremly vulnerable and makes me almost want to cry .
Baby Dracula - This song will probably be stuck in my head for weeks . This song makes you want to play it over and over again and sing along because it's really really catchy .
Black horse riding star - Ahh another one of my favs . I wanted to hear the whole song the first time I heard the clip posted on the website . It's the album's heaviest track and from my interpretation, heroin addiction gone very wrong . When the song starts you can feel how it creeps up along your spine and then the drums crash in and makes you feel both dizzy and angry . Kinda how it feels to be in a situation that you cant handle on your own .
Can't (halloween valentine) - a haunting song that makes me think of teardrop explodes/my bloody valentine . Jessickas lyrics and vocals makes me think about how it feels when your feeling really down and lost all your faith in yourself. Another beautiful track .
This album gives you the perfect mix of art/noise/dreamy pop/ -rock and will change lives . Im 100 % sure . This is the only cd you need . Im impressed , very impressed .

5.0 out of 5 stars At Long Last! 23 Feb. 2004
By Tara Molko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I want to say that the album exceeded my expectations, but I don't know what exactly I was expecting. The first track, "The Last Day I was Happy," completely blew me away as I didn't anticipate Scarling to have such a heavy sound. I think by starting the album out with a heavier song and ending it with a softer, melodic tune, "Can't (Halloween Valentine)," Scarling excellently displayed their versatility.
The Last Day I Was Happy Wow. This song is amazing. As I said, it was much heavier than I had expected, but it is certainly executed well. It's definitely one of my favorites on the album.
Band Aid Covers the Bullet Hole What is there to say about this song that hasn't been said? It was the first single, so most of you (if not all of you) have heard it. It has been discussed to death (most likely), so I have no new insight to offer. However, I will say that it is a melodic, catchy song, so it surely was an excellent choice for a single.
Crispin Glover How could one not love a song called Crispin Glover? This song had me from the title alone, but the song itself is nothing less than incredible. I love the way Jessicka's voice blends with the music. It's definitely the song that brings tears to my eyes.
Alexander the Burn Victim You know the feeling right after your heart's been broken? If not, listen to this song, and you will. I really don't know how to accurately describe this song. It makes me feel like I'm swimming.
Baby Dracula As different as Scarling are from Jack Off Jill, this song reminds me of Clear Hearts Grey Flowers a TINY bit. I think it's the tone in Jess' voice that makes me feel this way, but I can only hear the similarity during the verses. Regardless, I think it's amazing, and as Iain said, definite single potential!
Black Horse Riding Scar From the moment I heard the clip of this song, I wanted to hear more. I could tell it was going to be a favorite even then, and I was right. It's definitely the heaviest song on the album, but it brilliantly blends a calm breakdown within.
Can't (Halloween Valentine) I am really surprised that this song is my least favorite because I really loved the clip I heard all those many months ago. I still love the song, but it doesn't strike me the same way the others do. I think it's amazing how Scarling flawlessly mesh a softer song like this with the heavier, rougher previous tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something new 16 Aug. 2004
By Jessicka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Much of Scarling's success can be clearly attributed to their ringleader, Jessicka, who as you should know by now, was frontwoman of the old, Marilyn Manson-produced band Jack Off Jill. If you think Scarling. is going to sound like them at all, you couldnt be more wrong. Although not as heavy, loud, or rocking as the old Florida shock rock group youre thinking of, it brings something new to the plate. The vocals are completely different, so you wouldnt know you were even listening to the raven haired rocker unless you had been told. A lot easier to sing to than JOJ CDs, but not nearly as agressive or strong. And I was dissapointed with the lack of energy that was apparent on this album, and the fact that it just wont get you going like any old JOJ album will, i guess its not fair for me to try and compare it to something else.

The lyrics are pretty good, especially on the tracks Crispin Glover, where jessicka states 'yeah, theyre laughing at you, theyre not laughing with you' or in H/C where youre pointed out admist the heavy guitar walls, that 'When your life turns fashion, here comes love/ watch the people cash in, here comes love.' The oddest thing about this album is how it combines the light and the dark. Its like dark punk and light goth, which makes for a strange, strange sound that is undeniably fresh and new. The guitar work is some of the most inventive heard today, and i really like the progressions and the way the sound seems to spiral out of control. Although the album has its high points, found in tracks like 'Band-Aid covers the bullet hole' 'Alexender the Burn Victim' 'H/C' or 'Crispin Glover' it still finds itself coming into problems such as songs that you just plain dont care about, like 'The last day i was happy' or 'Baby Dracula' or the fact that Scarling. sounds lightyears more refined and 'studio' than JOJ fands will expeect, not to mention you cannot be distracted from the fact that youve just spent $14 on a 30 minute CD. The more i think about Scarling. , the less i know where i stand on them. Funny how theyre like that.
