RAT FANCY: Suck a Lemon: 12”EP

Loose and jingly-jangly, this EP is not my bag. The guitars aren’t tuned, the keys are overpoweringly shrill, the drumming’s inconsistent, and the layered vocals are drowning in reverb. Plus, all the songs are pretty one-note: cutesy, aimless, ‘50s-derived pop rock. Honestly, I’d rather suck a lemon than listen to this EP again. –Simone Carter (HHBTM, [email protected], hhbtm.com)
