It’s almost as though Courtney Love doesn’t know it is her duty as a train wreck to announce a new record and then keep pushing the release date back and back and back until it disappears into a haze of Chinese Democracy-like proportions: Not two weeks after Nobody’s Daughter got a label and a release date of April 27th, the first single from the reanimated corpse of Hole is here… and it doesn’t suck.
Much like the clip of “Samantha” I linked to last time, “Skinny Little Bitch” sounds a bit like leftovers from the ’90s instead of something vivid and in the moment. But from the sludgy bar chords to Love’s aggro wail, it definitely sounds like Hole. And despite the fact that I am no longer 19 years old, I still really enjoy Hole, so, hey, awesometown.
You can download the clip for yourself at NobodysDaughter.com, if you want. Do you want, Mixers? What think you?
