Kristin Kontrol

Kristin Kontrol, aka Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls, has shared another song off her debut album X-Communicate. Like the other songs we've heard off the album, there's a distinct '80s pop vibe here and "(Don't) Wannabe" really sounds like it could've been a big hit in the Reagan Era, one of those mid-tempo anthems with a giant chorus that Pat Benatar pulled off with panache. The sparkling production (via Ice Choir's Kurt Feldman) is spot-on and Kristin really goes for it vocally. This one's great, and you can stream it below.

As mentioned, Kristin's first solo shows are in June, including NYC-area shows at BSP Kingston on June 15 (tickets) and wrap up at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on June 22 (tickets). X-Communicate is out May 27 via Sub Pop
