'James Dean' by Chastity Belt, at Rendezvous 4/12
"James Dean" by Chastity Belt
"This is sex! / This is war! / This is me [explicit] you on the dance floor!"
Chastity Belt recorded an album in Seattle last month with the band Dude York, fellow purveyors of loud pop rock. "James Dean" is from those sessions: a song about sex where one partner feels like James Dean and the other like a prostitute. That might sound a little sad, but the delivery suggests getting over it in a major way.
