Editorial Reviews

I Will Be is the debut full-length by the Dum Dum Girls. Recorded at home by Dee Dee and mixed with the help of Richard Gottehrer (Strangeloves, Voidoids, Blondie, The Go-Gos and, more recently, The Raveonettes), I Will Be is a decidedly medium-fi record. Just under thirty minutes with eleven songs, it's a short tribute to love, fun and the classic pop form of the '60s girl groups and early punk rockers.

The New York Times called "I Will Be" "teen music for grown-ups" and I agree with that assessment. Dum Dum Girls leader Dee Dee wrote and recorded an album that clocks in at 30 minutes and leaves you breathless. From the opening song "It Only Takes One Night" a reminder to a lover to remember her, to the Sonny and Cher cover that tugs at your heartstrings , I Will Be is like a ride down the Pacific Coast Highway on a motorcycle: fast, exhilarating and just a little bit dangerous.

Based off hearing Kristin Gundred's last band, "Grand Ol' Party", it's obvious that this whole concept is a put-on of sorts. From the outfits, "too cool" stoic poses the live band has adapted and under achiever production. Just take a listen to the former project. How could someone go from trying to be a 90's Grace Slick, howling away like a chicken in what looked like a spring break cover band to fronting this lo-fi throwback? It definitely raises doubts on the validity of the group's real agenda but nonetheless, who cares. The songs are good and despite my conclusions, I do actually like the album a lot. Insincerity or not. These days, finding something pure on any label is an unlikely venture for an industry that's become increasingly more geared towards image and hype rather than craft.

The tracks are strong, the production is dead-on and the songs are short and to the point. The music could have easily taken a turn for the worst if the noise was cleaned up. The Julian Casablancas blown vocal effect surprisingly hasn't worn out it's welcome and sounds comfortable surrounding what would otherwise be a "too perfect" voice. With the exception of the jarring male vocals in "Blank Girl", these numbers are all fantastic. The highlights are "Jail La La", "Everybody's Out", the neo-psychedelic title track "I Will Be" and the beautiful cover of "Baby Don't Go" which closes the album. Lot's of promise here and it will be interesting to see where this band chooses to run with the formula they're riding.

Icy-cool pop with a jagged edge, this debut full-length from the Dum Dums ticks all the right boxes. Produced by Richard Gottehrer (Blondie, Go-Go's, and a girl-group archetect), the album also reminds me quite a bit of the short-lived Brit band the Primitives, who like the Dums manufactured a line of songs with a feminine lah-dee-dah attitude mixed with buzzing, clanging arrangements. My hat is off to LA native Dee Dee for her vivid, addictively sweet version of the West Coast blues. Cheers, dahling.

Heavy on distortion and smart on lyrics, Dum Dum Girls channels the lost 90s alternative energy from Velocity Girl, Jale, The Breeders, Eve's Plum, and other lost greats.

I first ordered this CD a few years ago when I was listening to the Dum Dum Girls 2011 LP, "Only In Dreams." This record is actually their debut, and it's much more raw and unpolished -- much to the vein of Blondie, Shirley Manson, Sonic Youth or even the noise-duo Sleigh Bells. But that's not to say that the songs don't actually pack a punch. Dee Dee's soft vocals contrast the distorted hiss and surf rock of guitars and bass that are built around each track. She even covers an early Sonny Bono classic, "Baby Don't Go."

The Dum Dum Girls have gained a loyal following since their last 2 records, so you can be sure that I'll review their new album, "Too True", very soon! :)
