Dum Dum Girls - Too True, Rimbaud Eyes and Sundry Free MP3s

The new record from Dum Dum Girls entitled Too True enters our world on Jan. 28. New single Rimbaud Eyes is an easy ear-worm chorus, familiar flat rat-a-tat 80's drum sounds, and reverb-drenched chiming gtr - what's not to like? Head DDG Dee Penny says she hears a number of influences in her new songs, Suede, Siouxsie, Cold-wave Patti, Madonna, and The Cure, among others. Some of her songs in the past have recalled Mazzy Star, early Cult, and Divinyls to my ears, so I think you can sense where her sensibilities lie. Even the album cover looks like 1989 to me.
