SADIE: Lost in Space: CS

Apr 08, 2019

From the opening blasts of “Skull Rock,” it’s hard not to love this tape. This is anything but routine. Sadie is a six-year-old electronic music mastermind who is clearly not constrained by the pretensions that bog down so much of this type of music. If she has any sort of agenda at all, it’s to have fun, and it’s infectious. Her improvised screams bring a touch of riot grrrl vibe to her eclectic mix of punky electronica that sways from dancey to crushing to ethereal and oddly contemplative. This cassette is an absolute party, and you’re lucky to be invited. –Emma Alice Johnson (Self-released,
