EP Stream: Dum Dum Girls - End of Daze


We've been psyched about Dum Dum Girls' new EP End of Daze since we first sampled an acoustic version of "Mine Tonight" and its wistful first single "Lord Knows," and now Sub Pop has made the entire five-song record available for streaming. Frontwoman Dee Dee's songwriting has matured since the whirlwind, ramshackle pop-punk of her early recordings, but her songs still have an electrifying, bluesy drive that makes them catchy, endlessly replayable, and totally irresistible. Our favorites on the first listen are "Mine Tonight" (even if you didn't like the acoustic version Dee Dee and guitarist Jules played at a recent music festival, check this out - the recorded version is darker and heavier) and the sweet, old-school ballad "I Got Nothing," though you should definitely take time out of your day to listen to the whole thing. The EP officially drops September 25.
