Dum Dum Girls

The enlightening point of comparison for Los Angeles's Dum Dum Girls isn't the Shop Assistants or Bratmobile—the girl-garage pantheon from which they take their echoing guitar and drum sound—but Blondie and the Pretenders, who forever-pop singer Kristen "Dee Dee" Gundred and company aspire and ascend to. "Bedroom Eyes," from the band's glossy new second album on Sub Pop, Only in Dreams, turns on the quiver in Gundred's voice, while "Just a Creep" is sultry enough to suggest that the creep in question is on to something. It's all still coming into its own, but it's something to hear and see before it does. With Crocodiles, Colleen Green, and DJ Mario Orduno. (Photo by Lauren Dukoff)
