December 1, 2010

Radical Dads is a recent offshoot of our friends Uninhabitable Mansions, consisting of drummer/vocalist Robbie Guertin (also of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah), Chris Diken, and vocalist Lindsay Baker. The band is still in its early stages, but the musical talent they have behind them speaks well of their potential. The band’s music leans toward the more raw, lo-fi side of the spectrum, but the pop sensibility of their predecessor bands is also evident. “Recklessness” is a great introduction to the band, a two-minute blast of emotion backed by an instantly catchy beat. The band have already been playing a number of gigs around town, and you should take care not to miss them the next time they are on a bill near you.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed and the Schoeps microphones. I am admittedly not as pleased as I usually am with the sound quality – the mics were placed somewhat poorly in the room and the board feed was not able to compensate for the deficiencies in mic placement. Nonetheless, I think it is worth sharing with our readers, and please don’t blame the band! Enjoy!
