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. Definitely more blissed-out than buzzsaw:

Take a listen to Sonny & Cher's original here. Order Dum Dum Girls' 12" EP from Captured Tracks, and look for her debut LP soon on Hozac Records.

Lykke Li comes to TX this week, with a stop at Dallas' Granada Theater on Wednesday evening, and at Antone's in Austin the following night. Looks like the Austin show is already sold out, and only a few tix remain for Dallas, but you can still win tickets here until tomorrow afternoon. Denton's own Sarah Jaffe opens both shows.
