Shilpa Ray – Last Year’s Savage (2015)

Shilpa Ray has led many different lives. She founded a band called Beat the Devil, an experiment in grafting punk sounds onto Indian time signatures, which disbanded not long after its eponymous EP in 2006. She then became the lead singer of Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers, a more blues-oriented garage rock band that split up in 2011. In the aftermath of a second breakup, Ray spent time touring with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, releasing new solo music along the way. Eventually, she teamed up with pedal steel guitarist/bassist Jon “Catfish” DeLorme, guitarist/bassist Alistair Paxton, and drummer Russ Lemkin for her latest venture, this time just as Shilpa Ray.
