We’re about two weeks away until Courtney Love takes on Austin, TX and a good two months away until “reunion” LP Nobody’s Daughter fills out the racks at everyone’s nearest Best Buy. So naturally, the hype machine’s turned way up, and as a result, we’re picking up a whole lotta Hole. Surprisingly though, we’re okay with that.

Because if the remainder of Nobody’s Daughter sounds anything like the recently performed “Samantha” and today’s “Skinny Little Bitch”, we’re sold on the name again. This stuff rocks through and through. It’s a return to the group’s roots, tossing aside the ugly-girl-gone-sexy-bad-girl mentality that layered 1998’s Celebrity Skin, and dragging back out the raw and angst last heard on 1994’s Live Through This. The mood doesn’t even come off as fabricated or forced, which is a considerable surprise since Billy Corgan contributed here and one might have a hard time saying the same about his latest work. Nevertheless, we’re pretty jazzed about the record now.

We’ll see come April 27th, when Nobody’s Daughter surfaces via Mercury Records.
