Sub Pop Signs the Dum Dum Girls

5669

We’re very happy to announce that Sub Pop Records has signed the Dum Dum Girls! Having released an EP on Captured Tracks, a 7-inch on Hozac and a CD EP on Zoo Music the Dum Dum Girls churn out blissful pop that falls somewhere between The Ramones and the Ronettes. Which, in our opinion, is a very good thing.

But, why trust the highly questionable opinion of one of Sub Pop’s lavishly compensated marketing flunkies? You should really listen yourself! The music will do a much better job getting across what it is that we’re so excited about and demands way fewer smoke breaks.

We’re hoping to have Dee Dee’s first full-length out in the first half of next year—stay tuned for details!

Hear Dum Dum Girls’ “Rimbaud Eyes” Now! ‘Too True’ Out Jan. 28

Too True, Dum Dum Girls’ [bias alert] TRULY ASTOUNDING and UTTERLY MIND-BLOWING third full-length record, comes out on January 28th on Sub Pop Records (pre-orders here)! And while, sure, we here at Sub Pop are admittedly and hopelessly biased toward loving whatever DeeDee & Co. come up with, it’s only because Dum Dum Girls’ have a track record for delivering some pretty bullet-proof, fuzz-filled, dark pop anthems. Just look to every single full-length LP and EP for proof. They did it again with Too True, and the album track, “Rimbaud Eyes”, is just another notch in their proof belt, or whatever. I’ll stop now, I think this metaphor is kind of getting away from me. Just listen to “Rimbaud Eyes” from the forthcoming Too True in the embedded player and you’ll hear what I’m ham-fistedly trying to tell you.

Pre-orders of Too True will receive a limited-edition Dum Dum Girls 7” single featuring “Rimbaud Eyes” b/w the unreleased track, “Girls Intuition”. And if you happen to prefer the fidelity-maximizing vinyl music format, your pre-order will contain the limited, colored-vinyl Loser Edition version of the record. But, such as the order of limited things, when they’re gone, they’re gone, so order soon!
