Album Notes
Dirty Martini's second album Tea and Revenge is loaded with gorgeous harmonies, big stick-in-your-head choruses and unshakeable images. Tapping deeper into their Americana roots, there is no doubt that multi-instrumentalists and vocalists Lara Michell, Stephanie Schneiderman and McKinley, along with drummer Ned Failing, intended to make an album that is easy to like. And yet this sophomore set is darker and much more personal than their highly successful eponymous debut; the depth of their lyrics and the surprising musical arrangements give Tea and Revenge more staying power than your average album. Producers John Askew (Tracker, FILMguerrero) and Dave Allen (Gang of Four) have brought a rich but rough-at-the-edges sound to Dirty Martini's songs and both contribute guitar and bass parts to the album. Dirty Martini points out that their musical influences for this album are three other strong women: Kristin Hersh, Aimee Mann and P J Harvey.

Tea and Revenge was recorded by producers Dave Allen and John Askew at Portland’s Type Foundry Studios in Spring 2006. Allen and Askew shaped the sound of Tea and Revenge by deconstructing Dirty Martini’s songs and rebuilding them in the studio working with guest musicians. Allen and Askew also played on the record and the result of their production is an incredible album that proves Dirty Martini’s unique talents as singers and songwriters.

Refreshingly Awesome
I don\'t think I\'ve ever been able to listen to an album as many times in a row as I have with this this album. I picked it up after hearing Waiting For Magic on KINK.FM and I\'m thoroughly impressed. From start to finish, this album is wonderful and is now firmly planted in my top 10 list of albums. Excellent stuff.
