Brooklyn psych punks Acid Dad are set to deliver their highly anticipated debut full-length this Friday, March 9th, via Greenway Records. Acid Dad spent the first three years of their career building towards this 11-track moment. After gaining attention for their live shows around their hometown, they dropped their first EP, Let’s Plan A Robbery, in 2016.
Fangeist editors first saw these guys open for Oh Sees back in November of 2016 and was very impressed by this Brooklyn based 4 piece. Weve seen them a few times around NYC ever since and they continue to get better and better on stage with each show. They have finally released their debut album and it really delivered. If your are a fan of such psychedelic punk acts as Ty Segall, King Gizzard, and the above mentioned Oh Sees, you should definitely give this alum a listen.
The 11-tracks that finally made it onto Acid Dad are well worth the wait and effort. The band turns to influences as far ranging as Bob Dylan (“Die Hard”) and Archers of Loaf (“2Ci”) in surprising ways, creating songs that are as lyrically intriguing as they are musically enthralling. Whether they’re droning into the haze of “Mow My Lawn” or storming towards freedom on “Mistress”, Acid Dad balance dynamic melodies and unhinged punk with such precision that you’ll never find yourself bored.
