We’ve already posted the new Dum Dum Girls tracks “Coming Down” and “Bedroom Eyes“, and now Only In Dreams, the band’s sophomore album, is streaming in full. Like I Will Be, the band’s debut, it’s a thoroughly well-crafted example of retro garage-pop, though the new one is a bit peppier than its predecessor. Other than the one track that sounds like Mazzy Star, most of the album reminds me of what might’ve happened if ’90s ska-pop sprites Dance Hall Crashers had had all the ska forcibly removed from their music. It’s a strong, catchy record; give it a shot.
