Stream It From The Mountain: Dressy Bessy – Summer Singles Vol. 1 & 2

Last year veteran Denver-based indie-poppers Dressy Bessy ended an eight year hiatus with the release of their sixth album, Kingsized.  Now to follow that up, the band led by vocalist/guitarist Tammy Ealom, recently signed with the K.C. label High Dive Records (Shy Boys, Fullbloods, Sex Snobs) and have just released a 4-song 7” titled, Summer Singles Vol. 1 & 2.
Dressy Bessy has combined bubblegum-flavored power-pop and crunchy punk-rock since emerging from the Elephant Six Collective in the late 90’s and these new singles will surely please old fans and provide the perfect introduction for new listeners.  The first track, “Hey Alice!” is an almost textbook example of their fun and colorful sound, as it is both jangly and fuzzy with handclaps and cowbell to boot.  Another standout is the closer, “Wind Me Up” with its chugging, squeaking guitar riff and sing-along call and response chorus.
