This new record from New Jersey emo duo Dads is really good! I didn’t really know Dads that well before this album, but I’m down to get to know them even more now! Also I haven’t really gotten into the whole “emo” genre as of yet, I’m just now sticking my toes into releases from American Football and Cap’n Jazz. This is definitely a great example of the genre, with interwoven guitar lines, shouting vocals, and an underhanded complexity to the music that is masked by how fun it is. This would be a great band to see at a small house show: I don’t think they could ever play a huge space show. This belongs grounded on the floor with the audience so they can smash eachother around and have a blast.
Have a listen!
