"Dressy Bessy Hit Pick"

A few years ago, the Denver band Dressy Bessy released an inescapably catchy gem of a song called “Electrified,” from the album of the same name. In the quick spaces between its fuzzy stop-&-start guitars, Tammy Ealom sang enigmatically abstract lyrics about evolution and relationships (or something), coming off a little bit like a caffeinated-bubblegum version of Kim Deal. Of course, the Breeders singer never wore mod ’60s miniskirts, Day-Glo tights and go-go boots, whereas Ealom’s playful sense of fashion and love of bold colors saturate Dressy Bessy’s groovy new CD, Holler and Stomp (Transdreamer). Ealom’s arty cut-&-paste lyrics are just as pleasingly disconnected on the quartet’s new poppy-punk anthems, such as the hot-pink valentine “Do You Whisper?,” where she cheerfully ignores some guy’s advice that she “stop acting pretty.” Guitarist John Hill, who also plays with the Apples in Stereo, adorns kicky tunes like “In Your Headphones” and “Sindy Says” with effectively loopy little licks. Dressy Bessy are silly but smart, as when Ealom chants, “You want a simple type of girl, a simply happy girl . . . It must be obvious I cannot be yours.” (Falling James) - LA Weekly
