L.A. trio Sadgirl— named after a classic by Thee Midniters— like to do two things at once, and their recent debut single for Seattle’s Suicide Squeeze label is a worthy example. “Breakfast For 2” is like an East Side Story comp track (or— let’s get real— a Gangster Soul Harmony comp track) soaked in cavernous Growlers-style reverb, while their cover of Link Wray’s “Jack the Ripper” is delivered as a ferociously no-fi tribute to departed Israeli beach-party rocker Charlie Megira. It makes a nice teaser for a coming album, which could very well split the same way between garage-ified ballads and bottom-of-the-sea surf rockers. (Sadgirl dudes, check the Index if you haven’t—subterranean surf from 1967 Michigan, which is just your style.) And it’s nice to see a band respect the age-old power of the 45 single, where the A-side wins you over but the B-side knocks you out.
