Pearlene "For Western Violence and Brief Sensuality" + "Rosemary Girl" EP Double Vinyl Release Pre-Sale 

"For Western Violence and Brief Sensuality" is the band's most cohesive and powerful effort to date, following a couple of great releases for respected indie imprints Dim Mak and Sympathy For The Record Industry. While the energy and soul is still turned up to 11, the new album tightens the focus of Pearlene's vision with a fascinatingly multidimensional sound that is a Southern Psychedlic powerhouse.

We're excited to celebrate Pearlene's 10 year anniversary of "For Western Violence and Brief Sensuality," with a limited-edition, 300ct, 180 gram double record. On this record you not only get the 9 classic tunes of this great record, but also, the unreleased EP, "Rosemary Girl," which featured 3 unreleased songs featured in "Sons of Anarchy,"  an American crime drama television series.

Now that the neo-garage craze has died down, is it time for a little neo-boogie? Cincinnati blooze band Pearlene resembles the hip-shaking sound of Exile On Main Street-era Rolling Stones and early Joe Cocker, though Pearlene plays darker and heavier, and covers nearly every song on its third album, For Western Violence And Brief Sensuality, in a thick, druggy haze. Epic workouts like "Watch The Way" and "High And Dangerous" take a low-to-the-ground approach, but the results are grandiose, as ominous organ and echoing guitars fill the room like a static charge. Pearlene strives to keep a vamp rolling as long as possible, and when it works up one as loose and raw as the album-opening "Hosannah," it feels like it could go for days.
