"Gowanus trio Radical Dads are a bold, beaming, lo-fi treat--as brassy as the Screaming Females/Jeff The Brotherhood breed of nu-grunge, but with the snappy snarl of '90s D.C. indie."
"But for all of its grunge rock and angsty noise chords, Radical Dads is a band whose music is nothing short of joyful."
The L Magazine
"perfect distillation of so many current indie-rock trends, yet never coming off calculated or affected—the furthest thing from it, really"
"Released as a 7-inch single in early December, the track "Recklessness" is a fuzzed-up, energetic explosion with a driving gritty guitar lick leading the charge."
"Musically, the bassless trio sorta reminded me of the early '90s DC indie, and could have fit on Simple Machines Records alongside Liquorice, Tsunami or Scrawl."
The Needle Drop
"A Brooklyn outfit with a weird name isn’t that uncommon, but the fierce rock ‘n’ roll passion laid down on this song is."
Oh My Rockness
"They make happy, snappy lo-fi fuzz pop that walks that high-wire line somewhere between twee and punk and just straight up old school indie-rock." or "Radical Dads: a band to take home to mom"
"Radical Dads are three parts rock and one part art"
Radical Dads was founded in 2008 along the banks of the Gowanus Canal. Lindsay Baker sings and plays the guitar. Robbie Guertin (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) sings and plays the drums. Chris Diken plays the guitar and does not sing.
The band released its self-titled EP in May 2009 and the Recklessness 7-inch in December 2010. Radical Dads' first full-length album, Mega Rama, is being released by Uninhabitable Mansions, an art collective and record label based in Brooklyn, NY.
Radical Dads’ interests include disaster, piracy, land use, feedback, distortion, and feedback-laced distortion.
