Rainbow Jackson, ‘Psycho Betty’ – Free MP3 Download
Let’s say Ram Jam’s ‘Black Betty’ and Foghat’s ‘Slow Ride’ had an illegitimate child in late ’70s, and that this hellspawn grew up a rock ‘n’ roller itself. With a chip on his shoulder and a burrito in his pocket, the young boy might turn into a swan called Rainbow Jackson.
The Echo Park outfit — winners of Diffuser’s April Crucial Cut of the Month contest — has a new EP called ‘Perpetual Summer’ coming out in the fall, and to give you a little taste of that musical bastard’s bitchin’ brew, we’re offering their single ‘Psycho Betty’ as a free download.
“The song ‘Psycho Betty’ is about anything that goes from something seemingly good or innocent to something twisted and evil in a swift change of events,” frontman Chad Carlisle tells Diffuser.fm. “It sounds like it’s about a girl, but it’s actually about a guitar.”
“For the video concept, we worked with our friends Cousin Video to make something a bit campy and weird without straying too far from the main idea of the song,” he adds.
