If the Third Sex achieved any more popularity outside of their own indie rock shtick, they would have been immediately lumped into the Sassy Magazine "cute band alert" category. And rightfully so, as this self-titled EP features three arrangements of choppy, complex guitar riffs and the rugged/screechy dual vocals that sound as if there are two people singing two completely different songs. On top of the personal lyrics about relationships gone sour and teenage peer pressure brought on by popular culture, one can definitely see where Sleater-Kinney got their inspiration from.
