STUPID DAIKINI, THE: Everything Is Fine: LP

Guitar and uke heavy with dynamic, emotive vocals, The Stupid Daikini are serving some Sleater-Kinney realness routed through big pop rock moves. Heart wrenching, this record has the honesty of a riot grrrl bedroom project while maintaining a bit more of a punk-inspired rock sound. It’s personal and introspective; sad while retaining a driving energy that leads you to believe that, despite all the darkness present, everything will be okay. –Candace Hansen (Its Alive, Itsaliverecords.com)
