Artist: The Dresden Dolls

Album: The Dresden Dolls

Appears On (Mixes): The Opposite Of Smoke Is Egg Whites

Song Notes: The Dresden Dolls are a girlfriend/boyfriend duo out of Boston. They've currently got one self-titled album out (and also a self-released rarities/live compilation that was originally a teaser for the studio record), and they are apparently touring like crazy. I'm very fond of the album, and they're great live—maybe even better than in the studio. A fun atmosphere (assuming some ass isn't attempting to mosh/shove people when they play a cover of Black Sabbath's "War Pigs") and really pretty laid back and cool. Most of their songs are dark and deal with themes of alienation, loneliness, insanity, self-image and some of the seedier aspects of our culture (like "Slide" or "Missed Me", for example). For a fuller grasp on the band's style, check out their videos, especially the one for "Girl Anachronism". - Rev. Syung Myung Me
