New Dum Dum Girls – “Let It Be Me” (Stereogum Premiere)

When posting a demo of ostensible Jail La La track "Over The Phone" I referred to Dee Dee, aka Dum Dum Girls, as a "nostalgic one-woman girl-group." It wasn't the first time I've said something to that effect: There's a dusky romanticism woven through much of DDG's J&MC-on-Ronettes bedroom pop. For instance, this cover… More »

New Dum Dum Girls – “It Only Takes One Nite”

When we posted Dum Dum Girls' duet with Crocodiles' Brandon Welchez, we mentioned that these "Dum Dum Girls" are actually the L.A. project of one girl. True.

New Dum Dum Girls Videos – “Catholicked” & “Blank Girl”

For those of you who've given up on the Vivian Girls because of that bathtub interview, here's a chance to wipe the slate clean and find some all-Girls noise-pop by someone from another coast. We've been enjoying L.A.'s Dum Dum Girls quite a bit in these parts. Much like associate Blank Dogs -- they… More »
