Always outspoken, always over the top, CX KIDTRONIK never does anything halfway. His latest record with Sewer Rats finds the beatmaker, vocalist, and fetish producer bridging the gap between his work with Atari Teenage Riot and Trent Reznor. It’s blistering industrial punk that only barely takes itself seriously, and features a song-length commercial for CX’s fetish site. Because why the fuck not? The EP’s single “Drunk Dad” skewers the Walmart-Americans who put a fascist in the White House, mixed with clips from anti-Trump protests and demonstrations. It’s completely fucking absurd and it’s the video America deserves right now.
