Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, one of my all time favorite bands, has a new album out called Beat the Devil's Tattoo with a new drummer who was originally with the Danish band The Raveonettes. She's a she and she's a great drummer, so this band just got even better in my opinion - yay for women rockers! It's a good album and we both really like it; BRMC always manage to stretch into somewhat different styles of music while still sounding exactly like themselves. I think that's puzzling, amazing, and quite an accomplishment. Nevertheless, as good as Devil's Tattoo is, it hasn't knocked my favorite BRMC album, Howl, off its pedestal because Howl is truly transcendent. Check 'em out!
