Dum Dum Girls quietly split (well in my timeline) and Dee Dee now records as Kristin Kontrol. DDG’s were better known for short, sharp fuzz-pop but it’s a track that’s pretty far away from that, that sticks in my mind as their finest moment.
Coming Down is a real heart on sleeve lament that clocks in nearly seven minutes. On it Dee Dee's smoky vocals recall more Hope Sandoval than the lo-fi fuzzed-out Shangri-La's of the debut. Languid, echoey guitars shimmer with emotion and longing, complementing the woozy and wistful lyrics perfectly, everything about this track is mellow, luscious, amazing.
Listen to this during those late night, alcohol soaked melancholic moments and eight years on it remains something special.
