Dum Dum Girls "Lord Knows" (off their new EP End of Daze - released today Sept 25 2012)
Friends of Amoeba Dum Dum Girls, who did a memorable in-store at the Hollywood Amoeba almost exactly a year ago on Sept 27th, 2011 for their second full-length album Only In Dreams, are today releasing their anticipated latest EP; End of Daze on SubPop which is the SoCal female noise pop quartet's fourth EP since they formed a few years back. In celebration of the EP yesterday the band unveiled the new Christin Walker directed video for the track "Lord Knows" (Amoeblogger Billy Gil posted an audio preview of the song several weeks ago). It's a great retro-flavored track that embodies many of lead singer/guitarist Dee Dee's stated musical influences (inc. Mazzy Star, The Jesus and Mary Chain, & the Ronettes) in addition to both a Cocteau Twins and Boys Next Door vibe to it.
The new EP End of Daze is available now from Amoeba in each of the three stores and online in both CD and vinyl formats. In addition to "Lord Knows" the five-song release includes the tracks "Season in Hell," "Mine Tonight", "I Got Nothing," and a cover of Strawberry Switchblade’s "Trees and Flowers" (the latter three were each recorded in New York City back in February of last year with Sune Rose Wagner of The Raveonettes). In support of the release of End of Daze the Dum Dum Girls will be playing at Los Globos located at 3040 W. Sunset in LA on Thursday (Sept 27th) in addition to an upcoming national tour that will include such dates as October 18 at Terminal 5 in NYC and November 3 (final tour date) at the Granada Theatre in Lawrence, KS.
