Jodi Jett is the 'Female Lou Reed' 'Unique and intelligent--I haven't heard anything like it in along time.' That's what Grammy-winning producer Elliot Scheiner says about Revelations, the first full-length album by Jodi Jett '' recovering Kansas-bred tongue-talking Pentecostal. A scientist by day and rocker by night, young Jett now receives inspiration from her new hometown New York City. "Jodi Jett is the female Lou Reed," says Scheiner. According to Chuck Eddy (Village Voice), Jett's teased up song "â?-80s Girl" should be a hit. She also explores shallow-minded love affairs initiated on Brooklyn's Bedford Avenue, and mating rituals of greasy sleezeballs. Religious fanaticism (hear "Jesus Can") and midwestern upbringing inspire 'No Place Like Home' and 'Nemesis,' while 'Instead' describes the canyon between that which one desires and that which one receives. Jett's approach to her music has been described as 'sultry and sexy with a punk attitude,' and has been compared to the stylings of storytellers like Liz Phair and Mazzy Star, and to rockers like Cowboy Junkies, P J Harvey and Blondie. Album co-producer Phil Palazzolo (Radio 4, Bogmen, New Pornographers) describes Jett's music as having 'come from that elusive crossroads where naivete and sophistication stop to have a quick drink together. Those contrasts & conflicts make Revelations a layered record that reveals itself slowly with a big payoff.' Joining Jett on 'Revelations' are drummer David Berger (Erin McKeown, Alice Texas), bassist Byron Isaacs (Joan Baez, Ollabelle), guitarists Peter Mavrogeorgis (Vanity Set, Bellmer Dolls) and John Nugent (Chop), and cellist Jane Scarpantoni (Norah Jones, Lou Reed), among others.
