Boomkat Product Review:
The unpredictably brilliant Downwards label spins out three tracks of snotty goth garage from California's Dva Damas (pronounced duh-va duh-mas apparently). Their songs are brief but assured, from the the ghoulish Rock-a-billy strut of 'Brand New Head' with its sneering bassline and numb synth drones to the motorik bass rev and cascading circus synths of 'See Me' or the cantering Suicide-inspirations of 'Time Dilation'. In essence this record draws a line between the attitudes and aesthetic of leather-jacketed 50s rockers, late 70s New York punks and 90s techno industrialists to end up in 2010 where it's everything, all at once. Need!
