CD of the Week from Dum Dum Girls
Dum Dum Girls is began as Dee Dee's (Kirstin Gundred) bedroom recording project, and she remains the main force in the band. In fact, for the third full-length album Too True, Dee Dee plays and sings nearly everything herself. Dum Dum Girls began in Los Angeles in 2008, with the name inspired by an album by The Vaselines titled Dum Dum, and also by Iggy Pop's song "Dum Dum Boys". Too True expands on the noisy and romantic guitar pop sound of Dum Dum Girls.
