We all knew that Stephen Colbert was a rock star, right? Er, well, maybe not, but he did jam with four ladies recently…
You can listen to the official recorded version of “Charlene II (I’m Over You)” here: [audio:http://randomville.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Charlene-2-mp3.mp3|titles=Charlene ]
However you might like The Black Belles’ version without Colbert called “Charlene (I’m Right Behind You) better. Actually, you ABSOLUTELY will: [audio:http://randomville.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/charlene-I-mp3.mp3|titles=charlene ]
So who are these dark, goth-garage women that propped Colbert up on a mic stand? Turns out they have been around for a while and last year they released a single with Third Man called “What Can I Do?”
Listen to “What Can I Do?”: [audio:http://randomville.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/01-What-Can-I-Do_.mp3|titles=What Can I Do]
In true, gothic style, The Black Belles don’t do a lot of talking. Just listen to the music, watch the videos, look at the images and buy the music. For your own good.
