Just a quick one today about a new song I’m digging: “He Gets Me High” by the Dum Dum Girls.
It’s more a person than a band; Dee Dee did all the writing and performing for this EP. That doesn’t mean she’s the only influence here, though–in her very brief career (one full-length and an EP), she’s worked with veteran producers and writers. This track had production help from Sune Rose Wagner of the Raveonettes. The match makes sense; Dee Dee is moving slowly away from the noise end of noise pop, and this sounds like My Bloody Valentine covering the Supremes. She’s just getting a start, but I think we’ll be hearing much more from her in years to come.
