Battle Axe Heart
Sinister ice cool femme-fatalle fronts tux'n'shades edgy art-rock band with twangin' 50s sensibilities that snarls n means buisness.....
Its Garbage after casting off their horrible industrial supa-over produced sound and finding the smokey nightclub intimacy of early P J Harvey .......its also beautifully produced,arranged, played and creatively intelligent with a great, engaging sense of dark mood and understated melodrama..

Love how the vocals are so ultra-dry and cat hissy eeking out every nuance of disdainful self expression..

Its exceedingly self-assured Dominatrix rock-and if you (lady) look anything like you sound, guaranteed to have the self flagellating wimpy indie boys eating out the palm of your hand, while you whip and scorn them mercillessly.....

Bettie Black's debut is one cool ep. Black plays a bluesy, appealing version of rock with a nice line in catchy tunes.

"Nighttime People In A Daytime World" is sparse and restrained and packs a real punch nonetheless.

"Spill" recalls early P.J Harvey and thrillingly so, Black's pipes are those of a genuine femme fatale.

"Bright As We Can Shine" adds a saxophone and brings back fond memories of Morphine. Black sounds as cool as ever.

The anthemic "Fear is the new black" is infectious and punky, Black sounding impassioned and feral.

Bettie Black's debut is short, sharp and wets the appetite for more of the same.

�I must've been 3 or 4 years old listening to everything coming out of my mom's car radio; lots of soul, rock, whatever, it got my attention.� Liz Rose recalls growing up in the California suburbs.

Arriving in San Francisco in the late 90's, Liz began jamming with a lot of musicians from the vast wealth of local bands. �They liked my ideas and began encouraging me to write my own songs. One night I stayed up all night and by the morning had my first song. I was so excited! This opened the floodgates and songs just started pouring out of me.�

After a particularly transformative experience at an Iggy Pop show, Liz realized her destiny. �Iggy had the wild self expression I always wanted for myself. I knew right then that music was the only thing for me.�

Her fascination of the theatrics of rock and roll led Liz to pursue a degree in drama and performance at San Francisco State University. After graduation, she fronted several acclaimed bands in the San Francisco club scene such as Glow and Runaway Bunny. This led to her first record. Since then, she has continued to write new and innovative material, drawing from her daily experiences. �I feel like I have a channel within me that constantly sends me riffs and scraps of melodies.�

Liz's music provides a backdrop to the universal heartache of healing the human condition. The darkness of her music is redeemed by the confidence and strength of her words. There is no mistaking her voice. It's a clear and present, unbridled understanding of the struggle of the human spirit. �I am happiest when I'm writing and playing. It's who I am. I will never stop.�
