Review: Vivian Girls Go Meh for ‘Share the Joy’

Feature: Unveiling the Dum Dum Girls
New feature in LA Weekly today, and I do believe it’s the longest yet on Sub Pop’s recent signing, Dum Dum Girls. Some interesting revelations in here. Though the project’s main brain Dee Dee has been previously linked to her old San Diego band, Grand Ole Party, she hasn’t spoken about it until now. Also, it seems this hot, new L.A. band on the rise isn’t from L.A. after all. Gasp!
But none of this should overshadow the fact that Dee Dee made a solid record. I talk to her and legendary Brill Building songwriter Richie Gottehrer about the process, her vision and other exciting things here.
