Progress Report: Dum Dum Girls

It's been almost two years since we heard anything from Dum Dum Girls. The band's last release, 2012's excellent End of Daze EP, was not only a much-beloved sucker punch of a record, but it also played like a perfectly blissed-out culmination of everything the band had previously spent two full-length albums and a handful… More »

Dum Dum Girls overcame some early microphone problems for their patented reverb-soaked jams. More »

Dum Dum Girls – “Lord Knows” Video

"Lord Knows," the lead single from the new Dum Dum Girls EP End Of Daze, is one of the prettiest songs to come down the pike in the last few months. And in the track's new video, from director Christin Turner, all four Dum Dums play veiled witch brides who summon a… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

The video I keep thinking about this week isn't one of the ones on this list; it's "Ill Manors," from the British rapper Plan B, and it's almost a month old at this point. The clip includes images from last year's London riots, as well as a whole lot more footage that's explicitly meant… More »

Dum Dum Girls – “Coming Down” Video

The single biggest departure on Only In Dreams, the Dum Dum Girls' great 2011 sophomore album, was the slo-mo Mazzy Star-esque ballad "Coming Down." That song's brand-new video is a single worshipful black-and-white shot of bandleader Dee Dee, who we see staring down the camera while people come along and cut her clothe… More »

CMJ 2011: Class Superlatives & Our Finest Photos

We're on the other side of CMJ now, which you could probably tell by the uptick in the music news cycle, or by some bloggers' (could be any bloggers, no way to know who I am talking about) bleary eyes and corresponding level of risibility. Stereogum threw a couple of parties early on,… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

After last week's bounty of videos, things slowed way down this week, and that's too bad. The best video of the week was the one where the camera more-or-less holds steady on the band for almost the entire length of the clip. The second-best one is the crass TV-show tie-in. Still, there's some fu… More »
