It's blowing my mind how many new artists right now sound like The Primitives, one of my favorite late 80's shoegazer/pop bands who similarly kind of sounded like Jesus & Mary Chain. Dum Dum Girls are the latest to emerge from the pack (ie; Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Wavves, Vivian Girls, etc.)

With that said, this is some great stuff. Dum Dum Girls are actually one girl, a librarian from LA who clearly had a moment listening to Talk Talk. I should also mention the many comparisons that have been drawn to early 90's band Black Tambourine. Ironic that she has a forthcoming release on said band's label Slumberland. The debut CD is already sold out and the Catholicked 12" is nearly out of print as well. But check out tracks like "Don't Talk To Me", "Jail La La" and the heart melting cover of Sonny & Cher's "Baby Don't Go" here.
