Dum Dum Girls – Lord Knows (2012)
I’ve always been a sucker for bitter sweet sixty’s style simplicity. The Dum Dum Girls manage to pull off something evoking The Velvet Underground as though produced by Phil Spector, through the ever influencial Jesus and The Mary Chain and wrapping it around a sugar coated Mazzy Star harmony ….lovely.
Is it comtemporary? Well obviously not but then these days, what is, and frankly when the feel and tune is this good, who cares!
Random Fact: The Dum Dum Girls are signed to the label “Sub Pop” who made their names as pioneers of the Grunge scene releasing records by such luminaries as Nirvana, Dinosaur Jr, Mudhoney and Soundgarden to name a few.
