Screaming Females frontwoman goes solo as Noun – releasing an LP (MP3), playing Don Giovanni shows (dates)
DOWNLOAD: Marissa Paternoster - Holy Hell (MP3)
Marissa Paternoster (Screaming Females) @ DBA in Feb. (more by Leia Jospe)
"Holy Hell, the first official Noun release, incorporates keys, organs, and toned-down guitars and drums. The result is clearly different than Screaming Females: it's mellower, more melodic, and whereas the Screaming Females' songwriting process is a three-way discussion, Marissa Paternoster writes all of the songs for Noun.
Similarly to Screaming Females, Marissa's friends are an important part of Noun. Holy Hell features drum work by Angela Boylan (of Cheeky), Miranda Taylor (Hunchback, Black Wine, Full of Fancy), and Jarrett Dougherty (Screaming Females), plus bass lines by King Mike (Screaming Females). Her Mom designed the artwork, and her friends at New Brunswick label Don Giovanni are releasing the record. "
The The 12-track solo album, whose title track you can download above, will be relesaed in June 2010 on Don Giovanni Records who are holding another showcase in NYC. Last time it was one big show at Bowery Ballroom (forgetters and Jeff the Brotherhood were both on the bill). This time they're doing two nights in a row at Mercury Lounge (April 24-25).
