Sneak peek at the Ideal Fathers' upcoming EP

For the past couple of days I've been enjoying what will probably be one of early 2009's most interesting local releases, the Complete Waste of Time Travel EP from the Ideal Fathers. I knew when I saw these guys more than a year ago that they had some serious potential, and they certainly have managed to capture it here. The four songs on the EP are a tense, high-energy mix of punk and post-punk influences with a supercharged rhythm section, skittering guitar lines and a mix of shouted and sung vocals. It's fun and engaging from beginning to end and every time I listen to it, I pick out another possible influence or nuance. The band is still in the final stages of getting the disc printed, but look for an official release and accompanying CD release party sometime in  early 2009. In the meantime, you can check out the Ideal Fathers on MySpace. -- Cory Casciato
