Stream/Download: The Dads - Clip Art
The Dads are a four-piece from Rochester, NY. I first heard of them through their single "Don't Know How to Eat That" which remains one of my favorites of 2012. The song's main guitar riff is intricate and memorable which is a pairing you don't hear enough these days. It reels you in and the heartfelt vocals keep you coming back. Other songs like "Carried Away" are punky garage rockers that remind me of Harlem. The searing guitars found in "Zinny the Cat" are similar to the tones that can be found on Mr. Dream's records. The eight tracks here breeze by but are easy to play over and over again. Clip Art is available with a name-your-price plan via bandcamp.
