Brody Dalle

For Brody Dalle's first solo album, she enlisted an all-star cast to play on her new record which dropped this week called Diploid Love.  In addition to the release, Dalle kicks off her her West Coast leg of her tour tonight at San Francisco's Slims.

Diploid Love, is a throwback to the 90s era grunge rock which she helped shape as the frontwoman for the Distillers and Spinnerette.  At times, you feel like you've been listening to that classic cd that's been collecting dust on your shelf but then realize that Diploid Love is actually new and not taken from the 90s bin.  The best part of it? You can relive your high school days while listening to something vintage but still sound modern and refreshing. 

Brody wrote all the songs and played almost all the instruments you can hear on the album herself, with a few incredible guests that included Shirley Manson (Garbage), Nick Valensi (The Strokes), Michael Shuman (Queens of the Stone Age), violinist Jessy Greene (recently toured with Foo Fighters), Emily Kokal (Warpaint), Tyler Parkford (Mini Mansions) with Darren Weiss (Papa) and Hayden Scott (AWOLNATION) lending a hand on drums.
