Dum Dum Girls Get High
The Dum Dum Girls latest EP, He Gets Me High, is a short burst of garage rock sunshine that further proves these guys are the greatest combination of The Flatmates and the Mary Chain to ever come along. The four songs here are swirly, jangly, lo-fi and sound like a long lost C-86 record from, err, 1986. It's fantastic fuzzy pop that's about as close to perfect as you're going to get.
Featuring three originals and one heck of a cover of the Smiths', "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out," He Gets Me High is a natural musical high of distorted guitar bliss, lo-fi production, and addictive choruses that you can't shake. At four songs it's entirely to short and flys by so quick you'll have to listen to it over and over again just to let all soak in. But, that's ok, it's really good stuff that will leave you clamoring for more.
If there's one thing this record proves is that The Dum Dum Girls are anything but dumb, but are in fact pure genius.
