dum dum girls cover the smiths

Kristin Gundred, otherwise known as Dee Dee of the Dum Dum Girls, has a new EP coming out March 1st on Sub Pop.

He Gets Me High, like debut album I Will Be, was produced by Richard Gottehrer — best known for writing the girl pop classics “I Want Candy” and “My Boyfriend’s Back.” This time around, Sune Rose Wagner of the Raveonettes hung around for a producer’s credit as well.

The four-song EP features three new originals and a faithful rendition of The Smiths classic “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out.” It’s a heartfelt cover that’s obviously more fuzzed out than The Queen Is Dead version, but still has some Marr-esque fretwork:

The EP’s title track has a tougher veneer that bodes well for the direction Dee Dee and the Dum Dums are headed:

If you missed out on last year’s I Will Be, here’s the single “Bhang, Bhang, I’m A Burnout.” Enjoy — it’s chock full of grrrl power:
