Kristin Kontrol streaming debut LP, touring with Garbage


Kristin Kontrol (aka Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls) is set to release her solo debut, X-Communicate, is out this Friday (5/27) via Sub Pop. Made with Kurt Feldman (Ice Choir), Kristin is channeling late-’80s / early-’90s pop, both the kind found on John Hughes soundtracks and the kind found in the charts. Feldman’s finesse with these kind of sounds really helps Kristin realize these songs, but its her voice (belting it out more than she ever did with Dum Dum Girls) that really brings it home. Stream it, via Pitchfork, below.

As mentioned, Kristin Kontrol will make her live debut with a few East Coast shows next month, including BSP Kingston on June 15 (tickets) and Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on June 22 (tickets). She’s just announced she’ll be opening for Garbage on their summer tour, including the Central Park SummerStage on August 1 (tickets)
