Distillers singer returns with first album in six years

Music Review:?Music Review: ‘Diploid Love’ by Brody Dalle

In 2003, when The Distillers released their first and what would turn out to be their last major label release, "Coral Fang," Rolling Stone's Jenny Eliscu wrote, "If Nirvana had been led by a chick singer, 'Bleach' might have sounded like The Distillers' 'Coral Fang'." It was high praise that the band absolutely deserved. Nearly every song on that album is perfect pop punk - not only ferocious, but unrelentingly catchy, with Brody Dalle (at that time Brody Armstrong, since she was still married to Rancid's Tim Armstrong) spitting lyrics about blood and murder over charged guitars and pummeling drums. And even after more than a decade, it still hasn't lost any of its charm.
