Dressy Bessy prep new LP (watch “Tiny Lil Robots” video), touring w/ Filthy Friends

dressy-bessy album

Long-running Denver group Dressy Bessy are getting ready to release their seventh album, Fast Fast Disaster, which will be out June 14 via Yep Roc. The band made the album at their home studio with frontwoman Tammy Ealom and guitarist John McDowell Hill producing the record themselves. The album comes almost 20 years since their 1999 debut but their synthy, punky, hooky sound hasn’t aged a day — as you can hear on new sassy new single “Tiny Lil Robots” which was inspired by Tammy’s relationship with her daughter. The video for the song premieres in this post — watch it below.

Dressy Bessy will be on tour with their pals Filthy Friends — the indie rock supergroup featuring Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney), Peter Buck (R.E.M.), Buck’s Minus 5 bandmate (and Young Fresh Fellows founder) Scott McCaughey, and Fastbacks member/Minus 5 contributor Kurt Bloch — next month, including a Brooklyn show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 24 (tickets). They’ve also got shows with Potty Mouth and Colleen Green — all dates are listed below.
