Mexican garage punk band Le Butcherettes have released the official music video to “My Mallely” via Consequence of Sound. The group, which is currently in the middle of a European tour, have created this piece with long time friend and director Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, whose helped produce all three of the band’s albums.
“My Mallely”, taken from the group’s 2015 A Raw Youth LP, features Le Butcherettes frontwoman Teri Gender Bender staring in the video as an intense, animated and eye-catching in a stunning red dress, seen singing the lyrics to the song in all types of different, contrasting locations such as the West Village in NYC, in Mexico at the ruins of Juarez, Times Square, and plenty more iconic locations.
Gender Bender, who most recently has joined a new group with King Buzzo (Melvins), Dale Crover, and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez to form Crystal Fairy, commented on the video, stating “The juxtaposition of the video’s setting, place and time is a roller coaster of emotional history. Juárez. A lost city re-emerging. New York City. Feeling lost in a city that has been emerging. The duality is a constant in every feeling and way. No matter where you are, one absorbs their surroundings and grows within the chaotic element. That to me is the beauty of survivalism.”
Le Butcherettes continue their tour tonight with a stop in Vienna, and then off to Zurich, Switzerland, with a unique show that has been described as unparalleled. “TGB is so free and untethered and immensely talented that she should be everyone’s hero” The Dallas Observer describes “We can all learn something by watching someone scarily good enough to write a song like “Bang!” hopping around the stage in the style of a crab that’s having an aneurysm, a wall of hair covering her face, screaming off into the middle distance where there is absolutely no microphone.” It would seem like a show that should not be missed if given the opportunity.
