Track of the Day: 'Bedroom Eyes'

More

Past TracksDum Dum Girls are back with their second album, and if there's a shock here it's how much clearer the band's sound is now that they recorded something in an honest-to-goodness studio, as an honest-to-goodness four-piece. That said, the real revelation is the wonderful power of Dee Dee's voice. Her real name is Kristen Gundred, and she's the band's principal songwriter to boot. I think of Dum Dum Girls as a catchy update to a timeless sound that falls somewhere in between The Ronettes and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Yes, it is buzzy and reverb-drenched, but not snarling. And heartaches takes the place of melodrama or nihilism in Dee Dee's lyrics.
