Dum Dum Girls – Lord Knows

Kinda getting the “Coming Down” vibe off this one (and Boys Next Door’s “Shivers” for that matter), which may have something to do with half of the tracks from the latest Dum Dum Girls EP End Of Daze being off-cuts from their last album mixed with 2 new tracks and a Strawberry Switchblade cover. Dum Dum Girls work best when they’re on their toes, a little action and danger, a broken heart and an axe to grind. These listless forays into psyche-torch songs just don’t match up. But hey, dress it in black and white, add Debbie Harry hair, The Bangles “Eternal Flame” and 90’s teen witch flick The Craft and I’m thinking it’s best not to mess with the DDG.
