Next month we'll see the first Dum Dum Girls release under her new label, Sub Pop, the mythic label that is still as current and interesting as on its first days, if not even more. This fact has made increase her popularity in the last months, although she hasn't released anything new since the Captured Tracks 12" (and a track on the Art Fag split). at Pitchfork they have been talking about her non-stop for the last couple of weeks so you'll probably know about this coming release, the first single to be taken out from her first LP I Will Be. Jail La La, the main track on this single, takes even further the 50s and 60s influences she's been developing on her previous songs. This is a re-recorded version of the track that has been available on her Myspace for a long time. It's a slightly cleaned less lo-fi version and so are going to be the rest of the songs on the album but don't expect her to go all hi-fi anytime soon as she's still comfortable experimenting with 4 track and analogue sound recorders. The B side will be a cover of Rolling Stones' Playing With Fire I can't wait to hear.
