Artist of the Day: Dads

John Bradley and Scotty Scharinger, collectively comprising New Jersey punk-something act Dads, create a rather impressive two-man ruckus.  Donning the unassuming looks of your neighborhood coffee shop denizens - stained teeth, patched flannel, and bristly beards included - one wouldn't expect either of the two youngsters to raise their voices past ordering another beer or emitting a hearty chuckle.  Yet, looks are deceptively disjointed from reality (a fact to which I might owe all the sex I've ever had), and it so happens that Mssrs. Bradley and Scharinger have, in fact, been raising quite a stink since the 2010 genesis of Dads.  Through online releases of intermittent singles and various EP's, the most recent being 2011's Brush Your Teeth, Again ;), Dads have found themselves a pretty comfortable niche amongst fellow basement nocturnalists.  Employing their fair share of East Coast emo twang with the off-kilter drums to back it, Dads prove that it only takes two to twinkle, favoring spastic vocals and chronic tinnitus to the sad loneliness of silence.  Don't just take my word for it - check out all the FREE Dads jams you could ever hope for on Bandcamp now, then go post on their Facebook wall so you can know that they now know you think they rule! Do it! Now!
