B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 12 JUNE 2010


LA-based "band," Dum Dum Girls, created and led by singer/songwriter Kristen Gundred, has released its debut full-length album, I Will Be (Sub Pop). It's an impressive and fun summer rock record, filtering influences such as Blondie (mainly Deborah Harry's phrasing), Siouxsie Sioux, Jesus and The Mary Chain and '60's garage. Produced by The Strangeloves' Richard Gottehrer, who also produced the debut records by Blondie and Richard Hell & The Voidoids. We'll simply have to wait and keep an eye out where Gundred's young talent will lead her. Or not. Check out a local review of this record in The North Coast Journal.
