The Dum Dum Girls’ “Coming Down” is so Mazzy Star it’s crazy, and it’s easily the best (and longest! and most reverb-y!) thing I’ve heard from them — a surprising evolution, honestly. The other single from new album Only In Dreams, “Bedroom Eyes,” is pretty bland in both sound and sentiment, but they’ve hit upon something solid and sophisticated here. I’ve read reviews of the song that make Chrissie Hynde comparisons — high praise indeed! Dialing down the Spector and dialing up the druggy was a wise move, ladies.
