Published Jun 14, 2011If you're a fan of buzz-worthy noise pop, then collaborations don't get much better than this. Dum Dum Girls frontwomen Dee Dee has teamed up with San Francisco-based songstress Tamaryn to form a duo called Les Demoniaques.
Given their penchant for fuzz-soaked pop, it's only natural that the band's first release is a cover of a tune by the Jesus and Mary Chain. They've taken on "Teenage Lust," a cut from the 1992 LP Honey's Dead.
The single will be out on July 12 via True Panther. It will be available in two formats: digitally, and on what the label calls "a limited edition 'postcard flexi' that comes in an offset printed poly-bag." This will be limited to 1,000 copies and will not be repressed. The announcement adds this disclaimer: "As these are essentially printed on plastic covered cardboard the sound quality is far from perfect but we like to think it adds a bit to the 'vibe' (right????)."
You can see what the NSFW "postcard flexi" looks like the in the video below. The clip also includes a minute-and-a-half segment of the song.
Thanks to Pitchfork for the tip.
