REVIEW: The Dangerous Idiots / “I Killify You”
By Sean Clancy [The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette], September 15, 2022
◼️ Dangerous Idiots, “I Killify You” — Fronted by singer-songwriter-guitarist Aaron Sarlo, Dangerous Idiots can always be counted on to deliver smart, immensely catchy ’90s-tinged alt-rock, and “I Killify You” is no exception. Sarlo is joined by Randy Harsey (drums) and Jake Rutherford (bass) for this four-song EP, which was released Aug. 5 on Sarlo’s Legitimate Businessman Records.
It’s a mainline hit of power-trio adrenaline as Sarlo rages against the horror of mass shootings on “Sunny With a Chance of Bullets,” goes full-on Queens of the Stone Age on “Rope” and praises the power of a good love on the anthemic “Wi-Fi.” And then there’s “If You Don’t Smoke Pot, I Don’t Trust You,” an ode to weed that starts as a sort of electrified hoe-down then somehow morphs into a bona fide stadium rocker before returning to the quaint, country riff from the beginning, all in just under four minutes. It’s an absolute hoot.
