The latest release from the Dum Dum Girls is a four track romp that has all the usual hall marks of a Dum Dum Girls record, if only more refined. These ladies have a particular amount of sass that I really like (Sass? Hey Dave the 1950s just called..they want their dialogue back). The Dums totally have there sound down and its great to listen to. I guess you could say that they sound like a garage rock group. With mebbe a sort of Spector style wall of sound thing going on. I wasn't really feeling the first few things that I heard by them but now I understand and I reckon what they do they do really well. The title track "He Gets Me High" is a solid tune. Its perky and amazingly catchy. Its quality but for me track 3 is the real stand out moment on this EP. Its called "Take Care Of My Baby" and it nearly made a grown man cry. Its such an amazing song. It sounds like a lament from a David Lynch film. I thought it was going to be about the perils of babysitting but lo and behold it isn't. It is ace though and its really emotive and slow. Ballad? Perhaps but still quality. The only blemish for me is a crappy cover of The Smiths' uber classic "There is A Light That Never Goes Out". Its just a bit "meh". Its not so much a blemish more of a annoying grass stain. All in all though a great EP and I look forward to hearing more from The Dum Dum Girls.
