Father / Daughter Discography


Soft Cat - All Energy Will Rise

April 7, 2015 · FD-028


"Though most of these songs speak to the tribulations of everyday existence, this is Soft Cat’s magnum opus." -- Aquarium Drunkard

Pupppy - Shit In The Apple Pie

April 21, 2015 · FD-027

Anomie - Anomie EP

February 10, 2015 · FD-026


"The name might sound unfamiliar, but it's the solo moniker of Rachel Browne, who's the vocalist and guitarist of dreamy pop band Field Mouse. "So Long" is the first of four tracks on Anomie's EP, and it rips and roars like nothing Rachel's done before." -- The Le Sigh

Diet Cig - Over Easy

February 24, 2015 · FD-025


A collection of brisk, personal pop-punk that recalls '90s bands like Beat Happening or Tiger Trap in its simplicity and Eternal Summers in its tone." -- Pitchfork

"Over four noisy songs, the band finds some beauty in the chaos." -- The Fader

Happy Diving - Big World

October 21, 2014 · FD-022


"California's Happy Diving make sludgy, punky rock that suggests they've probably listened to a few Dinosaur Jr or Torche records in their time." -- Brooklynvegan

Sharpless - The One I Wanted To Be

August 26, 2014 · FD-021


"The One I Wanted To Be is an accomplished collection of majestic pop, just as appropriate to be blasted at full volume as it is to be left wallowing in the background." -- Stereogum

Rivergazer - Random Nostalgia

August 12, 2014 · FD-020


"Random Nostalgia makes big swings between humor and deep melancholy. It's got a Silver Jews swing to it, complete with David Berman's deadpan verse, but amps up the psychedelic strokes--Americana with a hint of acid." -- Interview Magazine

Never Young - Master Copy

April 22, 2014 · FD-019


"Master Copy is seven songs of emotionally-charged, throwback melodic punk with some noise-esque tendencies slipped in." -- The Bay Bridged

Small Wonder - Wendy

February 11, 2014 · FD-018


"Album highlight “Clearly Again” frames those concerns in a fragile yet expansive indie-rock ballad that ought to resonate with fans of Mutual Benefit, Badly Drawn Boy (that whistling!)" -- Stereogum

Cocktails - Adult Life

June 17, 2014 · FD-017


"Molded in the image of bands like The Rubinoos, The Records, and Shoes, Cocktails bring melody, harmony, and guitar rock in equal measures." -- Under The Radar

Andy Sadoway - Str8 Sh00ter

March 25, 2014 · FD-016


"The charmingly infectious "Str8 Sh00ter" built around a rousing acoustic strum, and Sadoway’s grainy and rugged vocals, the track is a three-minute gem to drag you through the rest of the day." -- Gold Flake Paint

Happy Diving - s/t EP

January 14, 2014 · FD-015


"Happy Diving demonstrate a knack for hooks that escapes most 90s revivalists stuck on the sound." -- Pitchfork

Various Artists - Faux Real

April 19, 2014 · FD-014


"One of the many Record Store Day exclusives coming to your local brick-and-mortar shop is Faux Real, a compilation of “faux songs by real bands” featuring Northeast indie titans Potty Mouth, Bent Shapes, and Radiator Hospital covering songs by fake bands from movies and TV shows." -- Stereogum

Colours - You Can't See Me

April 8, 2014 · FDD-003


"'You Can’t See Me' doesn’t pull any punches hitting heavy right from the get go exploding with shoegazey guitars throughout. It is an absolutely fucking brilliant song maintaining a perfect balance between smooth and loud." -- My Old Kentucky Blog

Spirit Kid - Is Happening

March 28, 2014 · FDD-004


"The track is a surefire toetapper, and you'll find yourself unable to take Zarookian's advice either. "Slow It Down" almost begs you to take off running." -- Impose

Flagland - Love Hard

February 25, 2014 · FD-013


"'It’s Your Time' is a shaggy slacker behemoth, sung by Francia and boosted by vocal harmonies that would make Blue Album-era Matt Sharp proud." -- Spin

Body Parts - Fire Dream

October 29, 2013 · FD-012


"It’s always a pleasure to hear a local band’s debut recordings, especially when they are as interesting, dynamic and as polished as those found on Body Parts’ album, Fire Dream." -- KCRW

Bent Shapes - Feels Weird

August 20, 2013 · FD-011


"Feels Weird serves as an eclectic, vivid primer on its creators' sprightly misanthropy." -- Pitchfork

The Everywheres - s/t LP

June 25, 2013 · FD-010


"The Everywheres embrace the sound of “now,” aligning themselves with contemporaries like Thee Oh Sees, Foxygen, Woods. But that’s not to say they can’t stand out from a crowd. Quite the opposite in fact, as their country western demeanor and faded vocals give “Some Disappeared” a kind of macabre, haunting feel. It’s the kind of infectious music that you’ll immediately want to hit repeat on." -- Pop ‘stache

Saskatchewan - Occasion

April 30, 2013 · FD-009


"'Possession' comes lined with an ’80s sway and some serpentine synths, snagging you up as it morphs from a simple, romantic charmer to a full-on midnight seducer." -- Consequence of Sound

Cocktails - s/t EP

May 7, 2013 · FD-008


"Cocktails, a self-described “slop-pop” foursome from San Francisco, blend sun-baked fuzz with Pacific Coast Highway-ready melodies, stirred in turn by frontman Patrick Clos’ Elvis Costello-like sneer." -- Spin

Leapling - Losing Face

January 13, 2013 · FD-007


"With warm, subtle textures and softly rolling melodies, Leapling’s Losing Face EP is both catchy and cozy." -- Turntable Kitchen

Pure Bathing Culture - s/t EP

May 22, 2012 · FD-006


"There's something about the lead song...that glowers like a grey English afternoon, the dejected guitar lines stinging like the watery rods that poured through the Sundays' Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic." -- Pitchfork

Oregon Bike Trails (now Cayucas) - High School Lover

September 13, 2011 · FD-005


"Oregon Bike Trails draw largely on Panda Bear-style submerged vocals, vintage samples and structural repetition, placing these tools in the service of bedroom Beach Boys odes instead of the Animal Collective member’s experimental, patience-trying efforts." -- Los Angeles Times

Mutual Benefit & Holy Spirits - Mutual Spirits

May 24, 2011 · FD-004


"Mutual Benefit on one side, giving us more childlike crooning. Holy Spirits on the other, making you contemplate religion again with their sacred sounds." -- Smoke Don't Smoke

Levek - Look on the Bright Side

November 16, 2010 · FD-003


"Even with the skill level of certain artists increasing, even with the technology expanding to make their talents flourish to a greater degree, every now and again, a song comes along and makes us scratch our heads incredulously and say, "There's no way one person is doing all of that." "Look on the Bright Side", the debut single from Levek, happens to be one of those songs." -- Pitchfork

tooth ache. - Skin

August 7, 2010 · FD-002


"Self-described as "downer pop" but we're seeing a lot of silver lining" -- Impose Magazine

Family Trees - Dream Talkin

June 29, 2010 · FD-001


"Lovely, lazy 1950s-feeling tune." -- Pitchfork
