It's been a little while since I've done a Random Rock column, so we're more than overdue. The drill is simple - I offer random-fire updates on a few dozen artists along with links to dig deeper, should you choose. From here on out, I'm adding 'N' MORE' to the title so that I can include some non-rock stuff on occasion. With a current total of 7,943 unread emails sitting in my inbox (no joke!) I sometimes wonder if the bands, artists, labels, managers, and publicists appreciate my taking the time to do this... but I do love spreading the rock. Here's updates on 31 Artists for Thursday, March 15, 2012!
The Pretty Reckless just unveiled a brand new video for "You," the closing track from their acclaimed debut album, LIGHT ME UP (read The Rock Father™ review). The video, by Grammy-winning director Meiert Avis, finds lead singer Taylor Momsen packing her things after a break-up and stumbling upon happier memories of her relationship.
Released elsewhere in the world last Fall, THE PRETTY RECKLESS will see the North American release of their debut album LIGHT ME UP this Tuesday. Fronted by actress TAYLOR MOMSEN of GOSSIP GIRL fame (Note: the only thing I've ever seen her in is HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS), The Pretty Reckless is everything that a rock band should ever hope to be.
