Product description

Product Description

Dum Dum Girls' second full length `Only In Dreams' is a great leap forward for a gifted songwriter and an equally gifted band.

`Only In Dreams' more than fulfils the promise of 2011's acclaimed and fast-selling `He Gets Me High' EP. It retains Dum Dum Girls' signature blend of the girl-gang eyeliner punk of The Shangri-Las, the trashy propulsion of The Cramps, and the moody atmospherics of Mazzy Star.

For the first time, all four Dum Dum Girls play and sing on the album.

`Only In Dreams' was recorded at Josh Homme's Pink Duck Studios, and Richard Gottehrer again produced, this time with Sune Rose Wagner from The Raveonettes.

By Cuban Heel VINE VOICE on 3 Oct. 2011
Format: Audio CD
I stumbled across this when someone I know on Facebook recommended it. What a great album. Tuneful and energetic, some lovely vintage harmonies and guitar sounds.

Overall it sounds to me a bit like Mazzy Star would if Chrissie Hynde had joined their line up. Lots of fuzzy, dreamy melodies but with a tighter song structure that reminds me of The Pretenders for some reason. They definitely draw on a sort of American, rock & roll/garage band tradition. But the tracks are so catchy it's much much better than the variable dirge you sometimes get from that sort of thing.

So yeah, ten great tracks, and a definite recommendation for anyone looking for something original and well crafted.

For those who like a comparison, Its like Neko Case meets the Stranglers. Brilliant jangly guitars with sultry vocals with feeling. This album is worth every penny for the track Coming Down. One of my favourite songs. Great album.

Some of the reviews for this album seem a bit unfair, mostly complaining that all the songs sound the same and the production is poor. I would beg to differ. I've not yet heard their first album but if this (their second) is not as good as their debut (also suggested by many) then i can't wait to hear said album as it must be a corker!?
I would agree that the album as a whole has a fairly generic sound (hazy/dreamy/shoegazy etc) but each song has enough individuality to distance itself from it's fellow bedmates and all the tracks are extremely catchy with "Bedroom eyes" being the best of a fine bunch.
The vocals and harmonies (very 60's sounding) are excellent and you do get some musical variation with "coming down" being a longish chilled out song and the final track "hold your hand" is a melancholy ballad.

Heard the song Teardrops On My Pillow in a record shop, thought it was pretty hooky, so I had to check these guys. Had a good couple of listens and I can't shake the feeling that the songs needed more work. The melodies are good, the vocals are nice but the guitar sound varies very little throughout the album. And the least that's said about the drums the better. There are about 6 or 7 songs that have the exact same 60s-inspired bubblegum pop beat to it, which makes the album sound like one big long song with a couple of slower sections.

I don't think if I'm being too harsh but I listen to a lot of different music and this record, despite the melodic potential, doesn't quite set the world alight. I'll earmark them for another check in a few years...

I was a bit dissapointed with this album as there debut 'all i want' is one of my faves,I have listened to it over & over so i really wanted to like this as much but after several listens its still not as appealing.Of course it would be boring if artists never varied their sound,but its not that,the sound is still there its just that the songs arent as strong or catchy.There are some good tracks such as 'in my head'(my fave),'bedroom eyes'& 'wasted away' but on the whole its just not as strong as there debut.
