Illuminati Hotties – “Let Me Do One More”

Record Label: Hopeless/Snack Shack Tracks

Release Date: October 1, 2021

Applaud Sarah Tudzin for branching out. On the second IH release (if you don’t count their free Mixtape released to get out of a label deal), studio veteran Tudzin includes accomplished medium-paced and chorus-driven fare like “Knead” and “u v v p”, along with a forlorn acoustic closer, “Growth”. Yet Tudzin’s wit seems best suited for the slightly unhinged, and there’s no deficit of that: the social satire of “Joni: La’s No. 1 Health Goth” and “Threatening Each Other Re: Capitalism”, the exasperated scream of “MMMOOOAAAAAYAYA”, and best of all, “Pool Hopping”, a shambolic romp that betrays the hollowness at the core of ‘you’re-not-the-partner-I’m-looking-for”. -Jeff McCord
