New Music: Can’t Get Kristin Kontrol Out of My Head

For a blog created to promote new music (see motto/mission statement above), I have certainly been focusing on a lot of old music lately. So this week I will be highlighting some more recent music I’ve been listening to.

Dee Dee of The Dum Dum Girls has become Kristin Kontrol and with new alliteration comes a new alternative. The Dum Dum Girls’ fuzzy neo-shoegaze guitars have been exchanged for electronic dance beats.

The title track of Kontrol’s new album, “X-Communicate,” . . .

. . . creates a “Bizarre Love Triangle” between Kontrol, New Order . . .

. . . and Kylie Minogue . . .

. . .  whom Kontrol channels on “Drive the Night”:

Kristin has taken total Kontrol of her new sound.
