Rudimentary Peni and surf rock meet, fall in love, and birth a child named Susan Atkins Diet. SAD carries the tone and vocals of RP, simultaneously following the other “parent’s” surf rock melody throughout this entire EP. While featuring strikingly similar styles of both of the above, this 7” manages to add their twists and turns with their anti-patriarch content and misogyny-slashing lyrics. To say the least, I am smitten and am left wanting so much more. As I eagerly wait for this “more,” I will leave it up to you to follow my footsteps and join me.
