D.D Dumbo - D.D. Dumbo EP

D.D Dumbo, the stage name for Castlemaine, Australia's Oliver Hugh Perry, is a pop and indie rock soul with an adventuresome, even unrestrained, delivery.  Using 12 string guitar, loop pedals and voice that rivals some of the top vocalists of the genre, he will paint you a musical picture using blues, psychedelia, dream pop, and, in a highlight moment, Roy Orbison's "Crying".  Interested?  I assure you that you should be.  I regret to inform you that the vinyl version of his five-track, self-titled EP is already sold out (blame your local blogger for not telling you sooner).  However, it remains available at digital outlets.  Lucky SXSW visitors can catch him live on the 12th and 15th of March (other dates likely will be added).

Devote your ears to the slashing blues riffs and soulful moan of "Tropical Oceans".  You won't regret it.

Track two is "I Woke Up Covered In Sand" -

The Blue Rider
