Dressy Bessy is an indie rock band based out of Denver, Colorado. The band was named after a Playskool doll of the same name, which was first manufactured in the early 1970s. Dressy Bessy is associated with the Elephant 6 Collective, a group of musicians from the Denver area that gave rise to many notable bands from the late 1990s including Neutral Milk Hotel, of Montreal, and Apples in Stereo. The band’s first full-length album Pink Hearts, Yellow Moons was released in 1999. Two songs from the album were featured prominently in the 1999 cult comedy But I’m a Cheerleader. As of 2015, Dressy Bessy is still actively recording and touring. They are scheduled to release a new album in early 2016.
