FATHER FIGURES, THE: All about Everything: CD

May 08, 2013

They say never to count someone out based on how long in the tooth they are, and these cats are a beaming example of how that can be quite true. A trio comprised of old Arizona punker royalty, The Father Figures adhere to one of punk’s finer tenets that too often seems to have been lost over the years, namely strive for your own sound, and come up with another album’s-worth of choice tuneage fueled by hardcore’s fire but throws in a shit-ton of outside influences that results in music that is by turns angular, rhythmic, angry, nuanced, and catchy as hell. In short, I’m fuggin’ loving this.
