DAN PADILLA: Self-titled: CD

Feb 08, 2007

There’s a part of me that wants to say that this is what the Replacements would sound like as a basement/party punk band, but another says that’s just taking an easy way out. There’s going to be inevitable Tiltwheel references made, but I think that’s fitting considering it’s some of the same dudes. There’s notable differences though, as Dan Padilla’s got a bit more soul to it (I know it’s been said before by other people, but it’s true), with an occasional touch of country twang, but it’s still rockin’ through and through. My only complaint is that this is a great summer night record, and here I got it in the middle of winter.
