Dum Dum Girls Ready “Only in Dreams”

I had no real idea who the Dum Dum Girls were. All I really knew was they were good friends with Crocodiles and that Bitchfork really digs them. That and they created the band name based around an Iggy Pop song. Other than that, I didn’t pay that much attention to them. Besides, the market’s becoming over-saturated with bands that are trying to capture the Jesus and Mary Chain shoegaze sound and at first, this band didn’t seem to demand or deserve my attention. However, judging by the trailer they just released for their new album Only in Dreams, I might have to give them a chance.

It’s heavy on the moody guitar and got a head shaking drum beat. It’s enough to keep me interested, which is what any good commercial should do. The album is set to be released on September 27th by Sub Pop and I might have to download the fucker. Okay ladies, you have my attention. Don’t blow it.

You can grab their new single, Coming Down” below. It’s a bit too long, but not a bad track. Check that out, along with some of their tour dates with Crocodiles. Be sure to check out that cocaine rodeo if you can.
