Cult of Sue Todd

"Nothing Noteworthy Happened Today" CDEP

Nacho Bake Records

Genre: country-rock

April 2006

This six song country-rock blast comes courtesy of Cult of Sue Todd, a quirky group of folks from San Fran. It starts off the spastic but mediocre pop ditty "X-mas" before picking things up for rockabilly "Emile." The off-kilter "Burn Tampa" and "Better Things" are probably the highlights of the record, as they combine a folky country sound with a sense of inebriated absurdity. The finale, "Foul Fetor," is also satisfying - it combines dark, somewhat Anomoanon-esque instrumentation with more cowboy-themed vocals. Overall, this EP is a solid contribution by Cult of Sue Todd to the annals of modern country-rock; it may suffer from obscurity (there are simply so many EPs out there), but it's definitely worth a look.
