Acid Dad’s self-titled, debut record arrived this past week and is the energetic, flowing dose of psych rock you’ve been waiting around for. The record is the younger sibling of the band’s 2016 release Let’s Plan A Robbery and the first full-length effort from the New York City outfit. The album is full of driving, punchy guitar and consistent, psych melodies that flow through the record without becoming jading. The songs don’t fall into the common, shoegaze-drenched form, but instead stand on their own with some real confidence.

The first track of album “Die Hard” is the perfect introduction to the record with it’s light beginning that progressively picks up the pace with the chorus “Mess with us and you’ll die” to get you charged up. Subsequent standout tracks include their single “2Ci”, “Come Outside”, “Bada Bing” and the final track “Dissin” are all infectious gems, but the entire record is a grooving, thoughtful experience that you’ll find yourself revisiting over and again.
