mp3: new dum dum girls :: "it only takes one nite"
Here's another new driving buzzsaw of a tune from L.A.'s Dum Dum Girls, who, despite being m.i.a. from SXSW, was the subject of more than one overheard conversation down in Austin last week. She tells me this is a song about being left behind, so while her infectious melodies and sublime girl-group harmonies are still in full effect here, they're a little more desolate and further down the well:

No word on when this song will be officially released, but DDG still has a limited number of her excellent Yours Alone 12" EP available here. "Catholicked" and "Yours Alone" sound particularly awesome on vinyl.
Essential listening for this balmy spring evening: Italians Do It Better/Troubleman label-head Mike Simonetti just posted up a new African Connection mix, made up of "mostly African disco lps and 45's mixed with some Caribbean and Jamaican tunes in there for good measure..." No tracklist available, but there's some incredible stuff here, and Simonetti's offering up any 3 Italians releases if you can name all the tracks (you can't):
