Dressy Bessy Gets Ready to Stomp

 

Beloved indiepop band gets down with bombastic style.

By Blurt Staff

A picture is worth a zillion words,
and so it is with the one above. You say you don’t know Dressy Bessy? BLURT
faves, they return with a new album Sept. 30 on Transdreamer recs. Titled Holler And Stomp, it’s the followup to
the well-received Electrified and it
looks to be the one to put the Denver
band over the top. The label sez it combines “uber-indie sensibilities
mixed with bombastic style, the band remains inspirational, hook-laden and
upbeat…13 songs will have you dancing and singing in seconds.”

 

Hey, we are all about uber-indie sensibilities and bombastic style!

 

Adds sexy-cute vocalist Tammy Ealom, “Personal, as well as impersonal
experiences over the past few years have helped inspire my urge to HOLLER and
STOMP!”

 

Well, all right then. Ealom is joined by guitarist John Hill (who also
moonlights in Apples In Stereo), along with Rob Greene on bass and Craig
Gilbert on drums. A monster tour kicks off next week….
