Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

This week's print supplement to DC9 includes my review of Little Black Dress' debut album Snow In June. Little Black Dress, as you'll recall, is a collaboration between Nolan Thies and Toby Pipes and is the first release from Idol Records imprint Exploding Plastic Records.

Though he has a respectable career with brother Todd at Bass Propulsion Laboratories, Pipes will always be remembered for his involvement in Deep Blue Something, the band whose hit single "Breakfast At Tiffany's" helped usher in the ruin of alternative-rock radio in the '90s. Songs from his latest band, though, are far more listenable--and not nearly as catchy--as those of Deep Blue Something.

But you can be the judge of that. After the jump, you can download "End Film," a cut off the album.

Little Black Dress -- "End Film"


They're not reinventing the style of lush, Brit-pop-influenced rock that's so popular around these parts, but if you ask me, they do it better than most likeminded local acts. The band performs tomorrow night at The Double-Wide Bar with Stereo Is A Lie and Colour Wheel. 

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
