Rachelle Garniez Has a Hot New Vinyl Single Out

Produced by Jack White of the White Stripes, the new single from inscrutable panstylistic New York rock goddess Rachelle Garniez is titled My House of Peace. But it’s not particularly peaceful, a jaunty, ragtime-inflected piano melody that kicks off with a lush, gospel-lavored intro that apppeared on her most recent cd, Melusine Years – which happens to be Lucid Culture’s pick for best album of the year 2007. Garniez’ voice is bright, beautiful and in your face: “Nobody gets away with murder in the house of peace.” As usual, there are umpteen levels of meaning here that come through deliciously with repeated listening. Jack White is on drums here with Jack Lawrence on the bass, Garniez handling all the keys herself.

It’s out on one-sided 45 RPM black vinyl on Third Man Records. There’s also a limited-edition three-colored vinyl release of 100 copies available only through Third Man Records, 623 7th Avenue South in Nashville.
