Bettie's Ace

A play on the great Dutch tennis player Bettie Stove, Bettie Serveert's debut album Palomine is to these ears one of the great albums of the nineties. Whilst references to the Velvet Underground are appropriate (and I urge listeners to check out their great Velvet's cover album), this album is from the first listen so much more accesible. Whilst influences and nods can be identified with the unsung heroes of the late 80's / early 90's indie-pop movement, from the first bars of "Leg" to the closing refrain of "Palomine", this breathtaking album serves as a fine introduction to a criminally underated band. Kudos to iTunes for making this and most of their back catalogue available in the US.

Bettie Serveert was one of my favorite bands of the era, and Palomine’s honesty and humanity sounds even better now, juxtaposed against today’s dehumanizing, technically “perfected” production ethos.

The band's sound was familiar, even archetypal, yet with its own distinct flavor that suggested any number of reference points and made exact comparisons elusive. Much of Bettie Serveert's reputation rested on their 1992 debut, Palomine, but they continued...
