mp3: new dum dum girls :: "it only takes one nite"

Here's another new driving buzzsaw of a tune from L.A.'s Dum Dum Girls, who, despite being m.i.a. from SXSW, was the subject of more than one overheard conversation down in Austin last week. She tells me this is a song about being left behind, so while her infectious melodies and sublime girl-group harmonies are still in full effect here, they're a little more desolate and further down the well:

No word on when this song will be officially released, but DDG still has a limited number of her excellent Yours Alone 12" EP available here...

videos: dum dum girls :: "catholicked" + "blank girl"

L.A.'s Dum Dum Girls just posted a couple of new videos, both comprised of appropriately winsome vintage found footage, on her youtube channel. The first -- for "Catholicked," which is the song that made us fall in love with DDG in the first place -- features some fitting home movies of a young girl getting, well, catholicked. The second clip is for an instantly irresistible new song called "Blank Girl," a "future b-side" featuring Brandon Welchez of Crocodiles.

elsewhere:

Fever Ray's awesome "When I Grow Up" single is due out later this month, and it features no fewer than 8 remixes. Included is a beach-ready re-work from Dan of Swedish balearic duo Studio, which would be decidedly less creepy than the original if not for some well-placed samples of kids on a playground. Take a listen after the jump...

Alright, last Dum Dum Girls-related post for at least a minute, but she continues to put out such consistently exquisite and irresistible fuzzed-out hits at an uncanny rate, and honestly, it's all I've been listening to lately (well, that and the new DOOM promo I just got in the mail)...

the mayfair set

The Mayfair Set is the new collaborative project from Brooklyn's Blank Dogs + L.A.'s Dum Dum Girls, apparently named after a 1999 Adam Curtis-produced BBC documentary series. They haven't released anything quite yet, and their myspace page is only about two weeks old, but the group was nice enough to send over these tracks from their upcoming 7", due out very soon on Captured Tracks...

baby don't go

As I mentioned last month, we've been smitten lately with Dum Dum Girls' "blissed out buzzsaw" of irresistible girl group harmonies and insanely catchy, fuzzed-out noisepop gems. "Jail La La" is without a doubt one of the songs of the year so far, and her dreamy, reverb-soaked new cover of Sonny & Cher's 1965 hit "Baby Don't Go" confirms that DDG can also nail a heartbreaking slow jam...

Remember that girls post from the other day? A number of commenters/emailers pointed out that L.A.'s Dum Dum Girls were a glaring oversight on my part, and after spending quite a bit of time listening to the tracks on their myspace page (please check out the extremely awesome soaring harmonies on "jail la la"), I'm going to have to agree...
