Demimonde Slumber Party (DSP) sounds like a 60's surf musical starring David Bowie, Sleater-Kinney, & the B-52s’ Fred Schneider as the crazy uncle...
DSP is a female-led indie rock band based in the lush, leafy town of Eugene, Oregon. Sixties garage rock served up with a heaping portion of psychedelic surf-punk & a side of math-pop make this musical feast your perfect midnight snack.
Their exuberant set is a full-course fiesta featuring a calorie-burning cuisine of riot-grrrl romps and playful ballads with sweetly-honed harmonies. Plus they’re always sure to serve you some succulent make-out songs for dessert, like sweet treats on your pillow.
Blame full-flavored founding member, singer/songwriter/guitarist Melissa Lubofsky for DSP’s genre-mincing sounds. Her smorgasbord of influences vary wildly - David Bowie, R.E.M., and Oingo Boingo, to name a few - but her eclectic style could be partly explained by early experiences as a reluctant math nerd. This may also have contributed to her tendency to complicate an innocent song until it\'s bordering on pop-punk prog. A neurotic idealist, she wishes she could find the recipe for saving each endangered species and turning everything green and sustainable. Failing that, her mission is to discover the ingredients for keeping a sense of humor and inspiring people to save the world in fun and delicious ways!
The band’s other founding member is delectable drummer Kim Lindquist. Rumored to be the love child of Karen Carpenter and John Bonham, her punk background adds spice to Melissa’s sugary melodic tendencies. Indeed, this seasoned musician has been playing drums since the tender age of twelve. She is also a gourmet graphic designer, cooking up DSP art for CD covers, t-shirts, and more!
Then we have Seattle bassist Tim Romain on hand to fold some \"meatee\" chunks of rhythm into the DSP sauce - and plans are in the works to expand the menu and include more musicians to add their savory flavors...
Be sure to have your pj’s and sleeping bags ready for the next appearance of Demimonde Slumber Party! They’ll bring the popcorn!
\"...Demimonde Slumber Party has proven that it\'s easy to pack upward of four genres into a nine-track album....Green contains songs that range from \'60s psychedelic rock to fast, angsty pop punk, with a folk ballad or two thrown in for good measure.\" - Eugene Weekly
