CD Review: Sexy Pig Divas 

Robota (self-released)

sexypigdivas.com

The multi-instrumentalist husband/wife duo Nicky Beatnick and Katie Cat formed this art rock band while the two were still taking classes at Kent State. While many a band that forms in college breaks up, they've kept at it and have followed up their 2011 debut Eating Square Grapes at Circle Pyramids with this nifty 5-song EP. The disc commences with the brooding, Pixies-like "City Life" and then dramatically shifts musical gears for the cinematic "(No) Dreams Before We Die," a song that compares favorably to Bjork. "Mudslides" features terrific harmony vocals and steadily increases in intensity. The group simmers down a bit for "The Great Divide," but the band is at its best when delivering jittery indie pop rock that manically mixes and blends genres. — Jeff Niesel

Sexy Pig Divas perform with Ariel Pink and Purple Pilgrims at 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4 at the Grog Shop.
