dum dum girls

Remember that girls post from the other day? A number of commenters/emailers pointed out that L.A.'s Dum Dum Girls were a glaring oversight on my part, and after spending quite a bit of time listening to the tracks on their myspace page (please check out the extremely awesome soaring harmonies on "jail la la"), I'm going to have to agree. These girls are actually just one girl: a librarian/Talk Talk fan named Dee Dee, whose "blissed out buzzsaw" is drawing some favorable obvious comparisons, on the strength of some fuzzy reverb-laden guitars and incredibly infectious melodies. This track, taken from the group's sold-out debut EP, has been on repeat all morning:

Dum Dum Girls have a number of releases coming soon, including the 7" pictured above, which can be had by joining the excellent Hozac Records singles club. She's also slated to play a show in May at the Smell with Nite Jewel.

Great song! I'm hoping that "jail la la" finds its way on an official release, as I've fallen in love with it on the MySpace page.
