This release sounds like it should've come out in 1993, after its makers had heard Nirvana and Sebadoh for the very first time. The pained lyrics and delivery of the former would've already swept the country, and the latter's "lo-fi" revolution (of sorts) would just be starting its run as an overused descriptor. Songs like "Suffocate Me" and "Pretty Little Pile" wouldn't sound so out of place because, in 1993 at least, aping Nirvana was still somewhat sanctioned. Unfortunately for LSDT, Digging Her Sin came out in 2001, nearly a decade after the apex of its home-recorded faux indie rock sound.
