Fast Faster Disaster

    Fast Faster Disaster makes it clear that, two decades down the road from the band’s seminal D.I.Y. beginnings, Dressy Bessy’s distinctive songcraft remains as sharp and pithy as ever. The Denver combo’s second Yep Roc release Fast Faster Disaster’s dozen new songs affirm Dressy Bessy’s career- long commitment to barbed lyrical insight and effortlessly catchy melodies. Dressy Bessy is an indie rock band from Denver, Colorado led by songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist, Tammy Ealom The band is associated with the Elephant Six Recording Company and shares guitarist John Hill with The Apples in Stereo. Ealom formed the band with drummer Darren Albert and guitarist turned bassist Rob Greene in 1996. Hill joined the band after helping engineer early recordings in 1997. The name was taken from a popular Playskool doll of the 1970s.

    Formed in 1996, and closely associated with The Elephant 6 Collective (The Apples In Stereo, Neutral Milk Hotel, of Montreal), Dressy Bessy have released numerous singles, had tracks featured on various compilations and recorded six studio albums, including Pink Hearts, Yellow Moons (1999), California EP (2000), SoundGoRound (2002), Dressy Bessy (2003), Electrified (2005), and Holler and Stomp (2008).

    The band is lead by Tammy Ealom and John Hill. Tammy writes the songs, sings and plays rhythm guitar. John plays lead guitar, and he's also a member of The Apples In Stereo.

    Kingsized is the band's first full-length release in seven years, but it contains the same indie pop/rock dynamic for which they are known. Special guests on the album include, R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, who appears on the first single, "Lady Liberty".

    Dressy Bessy

    Pink Hearts Yellow Moons

    Dressy Bessy combine the seasoned simplicity of the fifties teenybopper sound with youthfully charged bubblegum pop of the late sixties, resulting in a barrage of hook-laden melodies and catchy lyrics. Add a dash of seventies power pop with its guilty pleasures and the formula for "Pink Hearts Yellow Moons" is fully realized.
