On the Horizon: Spinnerette brings together Queens of the Stone Age and the ex-Distillers

Running across this video by chance the other day, with its combination of artful, Liam Lynch-directed visuals and growling, soulful vocals sinks deep and holds you down like a tar pit. Spinnerette is the combination of The Distiller‘s (now disbanded) Brody Dalle’s versatile vocals and Queens of the Stone Age‘s Alain Johannes heavy-as-an-industrial-plant guitarwork. Topped off with Jack Irons, the original drummer for Red Hot Chili Peppers who’s done work with Pearl Jam as well, it provides the classic alternative sound, but with the Queens’ edge. With those layers of musicianship, Brody’s underground, brooding singing leaves Spinnerette as one of the most threatening, talented new alternative/punk groups emerging. Their Ghetto Love EP (Anthem Records) just dropped today.
