Blissed-Out Buzz Saw

I Will Be is the debut full-length by the Dum Dum Girls on Sub Pop (2010) produced by Dee Dee (Kristin Gundred) and Sire Records co-founder Richard Gottehrer. Gottehrer is best known for writing the 1960s hits “I Want Candy” and “My Boyfriends Back” and for working with new wave and pop-punk artists like Blondie, The Go-Gos and most recently The Raveonettes.

I Will Be offers old girl group affect with punk fuzz progression (or, the band founder/songwriter Dee Dee’s much cooler description “blissed-out buzz saw”). Dum Dum Girls also include Jules (guitar and vocals), Bambi (bass), and Sandra Vu (drums and vocals).

Here are some mp3s courtesy of Sub Pop.
