Dress Me Slowly is the fifth studio album by Australian rock band You Am I. It was released in April, 2001 by BMG Australia. The album was produced, recorded and mixed by Clif Norrell at Q Studios in Sydney, except for "Beautiful Girl", "Watcha Doin' To Me" and "Kick a Hole in the Sky" which were recorded by Paul McKercher at Sing Sing Studios in Melbourne and mixed by Skip Saylor Studios in Los Angeles. It was also the first studio album to feature Davey Lane. "Beautiful Girl", "Watcha Doin' To Me" and "Kick a Hole in the Sky" were all recorded around 6 months after the album was nominally finished, because the band had written them in the interim and simply wanted to include them in the final product.[2]

Having signed with an American label, the band was asked to record demos for the first time, and linked with new producers. Tim Rogers said, "I hated the American guys and the English guys who were asking us to modernise our sound. We're just so unsuited to that. I've got the voice of a 12-year-old girl and the mind of a 70-year-old dero. But I love that record. The actual recording of it with Clif was an absolute joy."[3]

The album debuted at #3 on the ARIA charts, breaking their run of #1 debuts since Hi Fi Way. A small vintage clothes store in Fitzroy, Melbourne has also paid tribute to the album by naming the store "Dress Me Slowly"
