"WTD?" by Sad13

Sad13, is the  project helmed by Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz, as the thirtieth entry in the 2019-2020 program. “WTD?” marks the first Sad13 recording to feature live members Zoë Brecher on drums and Audrey Zee Whitesides on bass and is the first new music from the project since 2017’s “Sooo Bad” (also via Adult Swim Singles). The title comes from the chorus’ hook, “What’s the drama?” Dupuis explains the drama like so: “It’s about eco-fascism, climate gentrification, and the depopulation of species, caused by human selfishness and industrial greed.” This apocalyptic inevitability is paired with octave-spanning guitar riffs, buzzy synth layers, and a mid-song electric sitar solo. It was tracked at Studio G in Brooklyn with engineer Erin Tonkon (David Bowie, Esperanza Spaulding) with mixing by Sarah Tudzin (Weyes Blood, Illuminati Hotties) at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, TX.
