Dum Dum Girls - Too True

Since releasing their debut full-length I Will Be in 2011, the Dum Dum Girls have quickly built up one of the most purely likable discographies in all of contemporary indie rock — three albums and two EPs stuffed with clean-but-dirty riffs and tough-but-glowing hooks. Even more impressive: They’ve evolved their sound slowly but assuredly, adding new ideas and inspirations with each successive release. Their third album Too True is out next week, and it’s a further evolution, a clean and shimmering piece of songcraft that adds sounds taken from early-’90s dreampop and mid-’90s Britpop to their arsenal. We’ve heard the early tracks “Lost Boys And Girls Club” and “Rimbaud Eyes,” and now you can stream the full album at NPR.

Too True is out 1/28 on Sub Pop.

  1. I Love This Album

  2. It’s a lovely album indeed. The songs are all good and stay with you all day long.
    First great pop record of the year.

  3. This is an absolutely infectious pop album. Every freaking song is catchy and sticks with you the whole day. It’s very rare that you can say that about any album. There is no filler here, just pure pop pleasure (how’s that for alliteration!).

    This is going to be a short review. Basically, however you listen to your music – mp3, iTunes, CD, record – listen to this one and enjoy.
