New Music: Kristin Kontrol – “Baby Are You In?”

Kristin Kontrol, the ’80s-inflected pop solo project of Dum Dum Girls bandleader Dee Dee (a.k.a. Kristin Welchez), is back with a newly released digital B-side, “Baby Are You In?” The song comes from the recording sessions for X-Communicate, Welchez’s first full-length album under the Kristin Kontrol name, which was released in May. In a statement, Welchez offered her thoughts:

“Baby Are You In?” was recorded during the X-Communicate sessions and I really regret not including it on the album. It was super fun to make—Kurt Feldman and I let loose on the production, trying to pin down that nebulous aggression from Evil Heat-era Primal Scream, but let it cork off the party at the end.
