iTunes Editors’ Notes

By teaming up with Brill Building veteran Richard Gottehrer (whose previous productions include Blondie and The Go-Go’s) and Raveonettes’ Sune Rose Wagner (who plays guitar, synth, bass, and drum programming), Dum Dum Girls’ only real member—Dee Dee—set herself up for years of artistic growth. With Gottehrer’s production touches and Wagner’s instrumental prowess, Dee Dee lets her songs open up with each progressive album. Her earliest and most primitive sounds are still in the mix, but where early albums suggested a garage-rock queen, Too True incorporates more of a goth air. According to Dee Dee, the influences for the album came from The Cure, Madonna, the '80s Paisley Underground scene, The Velvet Underground, Siouxsie Sioux, Patti Smith, Stone Roses, and Suede. Still, Blondie sneaks into “In the Wake of You.” But tracks such as “Lost Boys and Girls Club” and “Rimbaud Eyes” reverberate into infinity, with strokes of The Cure at their most orchestrated. Looking for Dee Dee's heart? Try the slower songs like “Are You Okay?,” “Under These Hands," and the gorgeous “Trouble Is My Name.”

Customer Reviews

BestAlbumOfJanuary2014

I have had Too True on replay since its release. Trouble Is My Name has surprisingly become my favorite song. Lost Boys and Girls Club is obviously fantastic.
This will be deserving of many listens in the future.
Thanks Dee Dee! You are a rockstar!

Great Album !!

Too True is an amazing album to kick off 2014. The whole thing is perfect from start to finish. There are a lot of shoegaze, goth, and dream pop influences on this album. It also carries a very strong 80's undertones that give it a little bit of a retro feel. The drums have a nice snap. The instrumentation is dreamy and hypnotic while also being cryptic at times. Dee Dee Penny's voice engulfs the room in a sultry velvet tone. I'd suggest this to anyone who likes My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins, Portishead, and Grimes.

WONDERFUL!

Lost Boys & Girls Club is such a great track! Just preordered the whole album... Can't wait!

Formed: 2008 in Los Angeles, CA

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Since they emerged at a time when C-86-inspired acts like Vivian Girls and the Pains of Being Pure at Heart were in vogue, it's little wonder that California's Dum Dum Girls — a group whose '60s-inflected lo-fi pop brings to mind acts like Black Tambourine and Dolly Mixture — became something of a sensation on the indie circuit soon after the release of their first single. In 2008, lead singer Kirstin Gundred (aka Dee Dee) began making solo recordings as Dum Dum Girls, deriving the name...
