Dum Dum Girls, 'I Will Be' (Sub Pop)

8
I Will Be
Critical Mass
Label: Sub Pop

by Abigail Everdell

Kristin Gundred used to front San Diego post-punk band Grand Ole Party, but nowadays she's known as "Dee Dee," the enigmatic, perpetually black-clad force behind Dum Dum Girls' murky garage pop. On her Dum Dum debut, assisted by Blondie and Go-Go's producer Richard Gottehrer, she cages contagious odes to husband-Crocodiles singer Brandon Welchez (as well as anxious ruminations on losing him) in metallic distortion. But even the scuzziest textures can't hide Dee Dee's lush alto: On "Jail La La," she doesn't just flare into the red, she gleams into it.
