Oh where have all of the good old-fashioned "rocker chicks" gone? Freely admitting the somewhat sexist terminology (and the fact that Ash will probably have my head for that comment), but you know who we're talking about here - Janis, Chrissie, the Deal sisters, yes... even Courtney.
No offense to the wonderful new crop of ladies rocking the stage, but few can truly be said to bring the rawk. So imagine my unadorned glee at unearthing Fugitive Kind and getting an earful of lead singer Lydia Marsala's tuneful howl.
Unabashed love for classic hard-rock riffage: check. A tightly wound rhythm-section a la QOTSA, Foo Fighters and Muse: double check. Don't forget Marsala's rock-blues wail that varies from the Kills' Allison Mosshart to Jack White (Marsala admits to being a potential J.White stalker-in-the making).
The debut album You're Being Watched drops January 13th and the band rolls through DC's The Red and The Black on January 29th. In the meantime, here's the first single to keep those devil horns limber...
