Dressy Bessy

Pink Hearts Yellow Moons

Snap your fingers and tap your toes along with one of the guiltiest pop pleasures to come down the pike since last year’s Mark Bacino disc. Denver’s Dressy Bessy sports a joyous, AM radio, girl-pop sound crossed with new wave bounce, and given a bit of Elephant 6 sheen courtesy of Robert Schneider’s (Apples in Stereo) mixing. It doesn’t hurt that guitarist John Hill has earned his chops playing in the Apples in Stereo, while moonlighting in Dressy Bessy with girlfriend, and delightful pop vocalist, Tammy Ealom.


None of the lyrics of these tunes are likely to set the world on fire, but then they are certainly not of the “moon in June” variety either. Infectious melodies, fine musicianship, and the spirit of the 60s (though not in a slavish retro way) are the order of the day on this promising addition to America’s pop renaissance.
