iTunes Editors’ Notes

The Dollyrots pivot around the sugary vocals of singer/bassist Kelly Ogden, who started the band in 2000 with longtime friend and guitarist Luis Cabeza while going to college in Florida. Now based in L.A. and signed to Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records, the power pop trio makes frothy, faintly punk-tinged music, sounding more like fans of Carly Rae Jepsen (“Call Me Maybe”) and Green Day than their cited influences The Ramones and The Sex Pistols. Leaving the grittier feel of their last two albums behind, A Little Messed Up still has enough sass to please early fans: the opening track, “Rock Control,” evokes both Jett with its razor-sharp guitars and The Tings Tings with its vocal chirps. The gossipy bite of “Bigmouth” pulses with snarling guitars, and “Let’s Be in Love” has a surprisingly meaty heft. The title track and other tunes—like the summery “California Beach Boy” and the jangly, wistful “Rollercoaster”—are only a shade (of pink) away from Katy Perry, indicating that The Dollyrots may have re-charted their musical course. If so, wise move; there’s no reason “Some Girls” shouldn’t be blasting from teenage girls’ earbuds alongside “Firework.”

Customer Reviews

Pure Ear Candy

Another great punky rock album from an up and coming band. This album isn't as poppy and silly as Because I'm Awesome, but still rocks balls. I can't wait to hear the new tracks live. Kelly is a goddess!!

great album, rad cover songs

every track is immediately catchy and while it still flows from The Dollyrots punk and slightly pop roots, the band is starting to sprinkle more influences like '90's alternative and indie into the mix. the album has those toe-tapping, air guitar hooks you've come to expect from The Dollyrots, as well as the sugar-coated attitude and sly wink that underlays most of their lyrics. I listened to the entire album 3 times in a row, and I'm going back in for more!

The Dollyrots - a little messed up

This album ROCKS! I keep playing it over and over. Every song hooks me in. And they are just as good live! So fun and well done. :)

What started as a hobby for New College of Florida students (and childhood friends) Kelly Ogden (bass/vocals) and Luis Cabeza (guitar) became a full-time career when Ogden and Cabeza decided to make their band, the Dollyrots, a full-time gig in 2000. The duo set off on a road trip to find a new home for the group and settled in Los Angeles in 2002; once there, the pair set about honing a sound inspired by the Ramones, the Pixies, the Sex Pistols, and Green Day. Two years later, the band (which now...
