Dum Dum Girls: Only In Dreams
Buy! - (Sub Pop)
This LA band’s second album is a bolder, more personal take on their ‘60s girl group-inspired fuzz-pop. Bandleader Dee Dee’s mother passed away late last year, and many of the songs deal directly with her passing. While the lyrics are dark and filled with longing, the music is more muscular and radiant, with brighter melodies, more confident playing and more upfront vocals from Dee Dee, whose strong, clear singing often brings to mind Chrissie Hynde and Deborah Harry. 9/13/2011 - Don Yates
