OUT OF THE GARAGE
When the Dum Dum Girls emerged, they were part of a still-crowded field: garage acts that jacked, with scuzz and style, the subversive side of ’60s girl-group pop — and, in the Dum Dums’ case, their personnel (Richard Gottehrer of The Angels all the way on to The Raveonettes). Since then they’ve cleaned up, as garage-pop acts usually do upon leaving the garage, launched splinter albums (worth listening to: former members Frankie Rose’s Interstellar and SISU’s Blood Tears), and best of all, seen frontwoman Dee Dee Penny outdo herself on every single. Too True, their latest, is another breakthrough: a heavy haze of reverb, Marr guitar, and gothy Baudelaire conceits — no shtick, just shroud. Sapphire Mansions and The New Lines open.
