True Romance (Slush Puppy)
By: Alex Steininger
New York-based quintet Dopo Yume's debut full-length, True Romance, is solid campy fun, a mix of bright indie-rock, a slight garage touch, and plenty of disco-influenced, but far-from-disco dance beats lined throughout. The record has the chops, the hooks, and is lush enough to make you want to float atop its majestic beauty. Plenty of jagged rock guitars buried underneath a pretty picture, the contradiction is also part of the fun. Front man (and mastermind) Jordan Galland has an entertaining voice, equal parts suave and rock 'n' roll strut, and his words keep you eagerly tuned in. I'll give it a B+.
