Whether it be punk, indie rock or more pop influenced anthems, illuminati hotties show they can do it all, impressively so, in only 23 minutes. The album is as effective when it is aggressive as it is when it is catchy and Sarah Tudzin just knocks it out with her vocal stylings. There is a wonderful balance of seriousness, sarcasm and goofiness to be found and it goes very well with the punk/rock music underneath. Whether she is singing, yelling or talking the vocals are always interesting and perfectly suit the lively mood the energetic guitars and drums create for them. For a pretty short mixtape the pacing is pretty great as well. The first five tracks are energetic and mostly mid to uptempo before the group slows down for a break and some reflection in 'free dumb'. This perfectly transitions into 'content//bedtime' which is arguably the best and most realized song on the album showcasing everything illuminati hotties has to offer right now. The track builds slowly, shows off all of Sarah's fun vocals and feels fully original and unique with its strange mix of chants and noise breaks. Beyond that the opening track and 'freequent letdown' are stellar but this album wastes no time and presents a ton of memorable tracks. Really hoping I.H. use this record to build some momentum and release more albums that blend punk, rock and pop so well.
