Dum Dum Girls
He Gets Me High
The Los Angels based noise-pop band Dum Dum Girls follow up their
smashing debut album from last year; Let It Be Me, with the four
track EP: He Gets Me High.
An EP that proves them to be more than a one-album-wonder.
He Gets Me High opens with the fuzzy slacker-dream "Wrong
Feels Right", before the jubilant and lush title track, a post-60ies
pop-tune that suites every sunny
evening. Then there is the slow, pleading, yet seductive "Take Care of
My Baby". The closure is a nice, playful cover of the Smiths' classic
"There Is a Light That Never
Goes Out". Still, Dum Dum Girls may not be one of the most original
bands out there, regarding the last years bloom of the Californian
slacker-scene, front-woman and
songwriter Dee Dee, and the rest of the Dum Dum Girls; Jules, Bambi and
Sandy surely does one of the better acts.
And He Get's Me High is a quite fun and buzzing sophisticated
approach to the boredom of a life that simply is too easy lived.
