Father/Daughter Records has a lot to live up to, at least in my eyes. Their release of Pure Bathing Culture’s self-titled EP is one of my favorite EPs of the year. Introducing Leapling of Brooklyn, NY. FDR will be releasing their EP, Losing Face in January.
So how does it stack up?
“If You’re Patient” is the first track from said EP and it’s a soft pop number in the vein of American Analog Set with dreamy pop melodies, a brush-like shuffle in percussion, and a catchy vocal melody. If elevator music were cool, it might sound a little bit like this.
The band consists of Dan Arnes on vocals and guitar and Yoni David on percussion. Live, they add R.J. Gordon on bass and lead guitarist Joey Postiglione.
