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.

"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.

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.

Pearlene was founded in Cincinnati,OH/Northern Kentucky in 2000
by Reuben Glaser (guitar,vox) and Jesse Ebaugh (bass) known for his work with one time Fat Possum artists The Heartles Bastards.

Glaser also toured and recorded with The Detroit Cobras and The Cut in the Hill Gang (members of Black Diamond Heavies and Soledad Brothers)

Drummer Andrew Jody, currently a member of Barrence Whitfield and The Savages, joined several years later.

Organist/multi-instrumentalist Andrew Higley, whose brilliantly spooky and soulful playing is the cornerstone of this record's sound joined a bit later. Higley would go on to
perform and record with Ben Folds, Regina Spektor, Brendan Benson, Electric Citizen,The Greenhornes & Eric Burdon.

The band was fortunate to employ the spectacular vocal stylings of Beth Harris and Kristen Kreft on several songs on the album as well as a US tour Pearlene did with the legendary Radio Birdman. The two went on to form the harmony-heavy band The Perfect Children and Harris continues to make great records with her long time band The Hiders. (Both are worth checking out).

Early incarnations of the band included once and future members of the Soledad Brothers, The Greenhornes and Brian Jonestown Massacre.

For Western Violence and Brief Sensuality was recorded and co-produced by John Curley of The Afghan Whigs.

The band did a handful of performances recently around the rerelease.

Pearlene's singer, guitarist and songwriter Reuben Glaser currently lives and works as a musician and recording engineer in Berlin.
