Time heals all wounds, or so the phrase goes. For the realists, perhaps time only focuses events and allows us to move on after evolving on a personal level. For the dreamers however, time gives them — or maybe demands — the perspective of every angle, every possibility, every opportunity to wring out whatever is born from experience. Simple moments alone can magnify the processing and expressing of these perspectives, culminating in a deeper empathy, and for a select few, a muse for new artistic expression. Such seems the fate of Dee Dee of Dum Dum Girls.
Much has been written of her personal trials, but no words speak better of her handling ofexperience than her musical output. The new EP out on Sub Pop (September 25, 2012) titled End of Daze offers a bracing, daring sonic example of an artist evolving in their understanding of the world.
Two of the songs, “Mine Tonight and “I Got Nothing,” were written immediately following the Only In Dreams session. They were recorded in New York City with Sune Rose Wagner of The Raveonettes in February 2011, as was the Strawberry Switchblade cover of “Trees and Flowers.” Intended as b-sides, their nature was of another beast entirely, and Dee Dee set them aside for a future, more atmospheric release (Read more at Sub Pop).
