Boston music fans will recognize 2010 Boston Music Awards Female Vocalist of the Year Jen D’Angora (aka Jenny Dee) as the singer/guitarist in The Downbeat 5 and The Dents. That same year, D’Angora started working on a new batch of songs and indulge in her love of the girl group sounds of the 60′s. The Deelinquents formed soon thereafter, with members of Papas Fritas, The Gravel Pit, and Schnockered.

“There isn’t a music on earth that better suits D’Angora’s voice than girl-group-era R&B, straight-up, and that’s what she’s singing here — with bonus points for writing songs that hold their own next to the classics. (There’s a Daptone-like quality to her recordings that makes you do audio double-takes: are you sure this s%&t wasn’t recorded in 1964?).” — Boston Phoenix

After spending a couple of years mining the Brill Building sounds of the 60’s, Dee and company decided to shift gears a bit and fast forward to the late 1970’s, reacquainting herself with how she discovered the girl groups in the first place: Blondie and the New York Dolls. The band’s new sound is reminiscent of both of those things, while favoring fuzzy guitars and a less retro production value.

«This is one of the highest compliments I can give--it's the Blondie album I've been waiting for since 1981. Just tremendous, yet not a nostalgia trip.» — Steve Reynolds — Premier Radio Network, NY, NY

On “Electric Candyland,” Dee and her misfits bat their lashes like a ’50s girl group (“That Moon Was Low”), joyride through American new wave (“Getaway”) and strut with Nancy Sinatra pop in go-go boots (“Livin’ Alone”). And there’s so much more — bubblegum punk, sock-hop soul, surf riffs — all handled expertly by producer Ed Valauskas and a big band (horns! harmonies!). – Boston Herald

Electric Candyland features 8 original songs penned by Dee and two covers by The Sweet and Graham Parker (the latter given to Dee by Parker himself to record).

«Plain and simple, Jenny Dee is one of the best singers out there.» —
