Lissy Trullie Goes Downtown
The month before, movie goers taking in Diablo Cody's (Juno) latest film "Jennifer's Body" (Out September 18th) will also hear Lissy Trullie's compelling cover of the Hot Chip song "Ready For The Floor" as part of the films original motion picture soundtrack, in stores August 25th.
As well as playing planned dates in the UK, France, and CMJ in New York, later this year Lissy Trullie will enter the studio with producer Bernard Butler to begin work on her full-length debut, which will be released on Downtown in early 2010.
Lissy Trullie's story thus far has been a remarkable one for the young musician. In February 2009, after a year of building up a fan-base by playing gigs around New York, Trullie released the debut EP Self-Taught Learner on Brooklyn based indie label American Myth to critical acclaim. SPIN declared Lissy Trullie one of New York's "finest new bands", and Rolling Stone wrote "with a tomboy growl and Television-ish guitar hooks, her first EP brings enough attitude to put art stars in their place... The Girl can rock an after-after party." Not one to sit around, Lissy Trullie hit the road to play dates across the US and Europe, including two national tours with The Virgins in the states. She also completed music videos for the songs "Boy Boy" (Directed by Cass Bird) and "Ready For The Floor" (Directed by Richard Kern), and made her late night TV debut on Last Call With Carson Daly earlier this summer.
Downtown Records is very happy to have such a dynamic artist join their diverse roster of talented musicians. The October 20th release of Self-Taught Learner on Downtown will have something new for fans, adding four previously unreleased tracks to the mix. The new songs include the original compositions "Don't To Do", "You Bleed You", "Hold Your Head", and a duet cover of Biz Markie's "Just A Friend" recorded with Adam Green.
In the fall Lissy Trullie will begin work recording her full-length debut with producer Bernard Butler - scheduled for release on Downtown Records in early 2010. The Suede guitarist has worked with many artists including Duffy, Cut Off Your Hands, Black Kids, and Kate Nash among others. She and the band are also excited to be joining The Cribs and Adam Green for a UK tour this September. In October Lissy Trullie will play the 2009 CMJ Music Festival before heading to France for Festival Inrockuptibles.
