dum dum girls - he gets me high

los angeles-based dum dum girls follow up their fuzzy, girl group-inspired 2010 sub pop debut "i will be" with "he gets me high", an ep composed of three originals and a cover of the swooning smiths’ classic “there is a light that never goes out.” lead singer/songwriter dee dee, richard gotteher (who also worked on i will be and is best known for penning “my boyfriend’s back” and “i want candy”), and sune rose wagner of the raveonettes produced the ep. i am surpised (in a positive way) about their version of "there is a light that never goes out". it's far better than expected. noisy.... okay, but they kept the main characteristics of the original. great follow up! all thumbs up!
