Spotlight – 26: Dum Dum Girls
This is a hot tip from NYC’s Bust magazine.
And I am sure as hell going to be following up tips like that. Dum Dum Girls play fuzzed-up blissed-down beautifully harmonic sun-drenched femme fuzz… have I used that word yet?… pop. The ladies understand Joey and Dee Dee because Dee Dee and Joey always understood the ladies. Oh wait. You’ll be wanting to hear some. Have a look over here then. The drum beat is pure early Vaselines, for what it’s worth. The harmonies are pure Lower East Side.
Folk often ask me how I discover music. This is how I discover music. Through friends.
Always through friends.
I wonder if Pitchfork have already dismissed them because they’re female?
