Olivia Jean – Nashville


On their initial flurry of singles for Jack White’s Third Man Records, and even more so on their eponymous album in 2011, the all-female “garage-goth” band the Black Belles amply delivered on the promise of that self-invented genre description with a ferocious snarl, an abundance of attitude, plenty of dark atmosphere, and a healthy dose of humor (and I lauded them for all of the above on this episode of Sound Opinions). But even as a smitten fan, I wasn’t quite prepared for the joys of Bathtub Love Killings, the solo debut by the Black Belles’ multi-instrumentalist Olivia Jean.
