Boomkat Product Review:
Remastered by Slowdive's Simon Scott, LA five-piece Dummy's first two EPs are collected up on this deluxe comp. RIYL Stereolab, Antena, Iasos.
Dummy haven't been around for long, but they've already made a splash with their debut album "Mandatory Enjoyment" that arrived last year on Trouble in Mind. "Dumb EPs" is a collection of their previous two releases, 2020's "Dummy EP" that was released on Pop Wig, and its pandemic-recorded follow-up "EP2" that came out on Chicago's Born Yesterday in November that same year. Completely self-recorded, these two lo-fi offerings display the band's influences without complication - "EP2" was even recorded on an iPhone, as the band dealt with quarantine restrictions.
Musically, it's engaging stuff, betraying a love for Stereolab on tracks like 'Avant Garde Gas Station' and 'Slacker Mask'; "EP2" track 'Pool Dizzy' sounds like it wouldn't have been out of place on "Emperor Tomato Ketchup". But that's not where the story ends: wiry ambient jammer 'Touch the Chimes' owes more to US new age deity Iasos, and the aptly titled 'Folk Song' is closer to Espers.
