Dum Dum Girls is known for its California garage pop sound. Cuff the Duke is known for its folk and alt-country influences. The latter band recently covered the sultry lead track from the Dum Dum Girls’ new Only in Dreams and the result is stunning.
Cuff the Duke brings a twang that is so foreign to the powerful tune that it’s almost unnerving. The band has released the cover on the currently free Paper Bag Records 2011 Fall Sampler. Download the cover below, then snag the full set at Paper Bag Records while it’s still free, along with songs from labelmates PS I Love You, Young Galaxy, and Austra, just to name a few.
