Acid Dad's new album gets an exclusive Fuzz Club Edition in partnership with Levitation/The Reverberation Appreciation Society
We're pumped to announce that we'll be doing an exclusive Fuzz Club Edition of the incoming album from Acid Dad. Titled 'Take It From The Dead', our version comes on 180g blue marble transparent vinyl and includes an exclusive 7" flexi-disc with a live version of 'Living With A Creature' recorded at the Greenway Records studio in Queens, NY during the pandemic. Out today, Acid Dad are now sharing the new latest single from the record, 'BBQ' – an almost-criminally infectious slice of garage-y, fuzzed-out slacker-pop. You can pre-order the Fuzz Club Edition here and stream the track and its accompanying video below
Acid Dad is an American alternative-rock band composed of singer-guitarists, Vaughn Hunt and Sean Fahey, and drummer, Trevor Mustoe. Vaughn first started recording the band in his Bushwick, NY basement releasing singles “Brain Body” and their first EP “Let’s Plan a Robbery.” Appearing live in the New York City rock scene in 2016, Acid Dad quickly moved to a world stage with their self-titled debut album, released by Greenway Records in 2018.
During 2020, the band spent their time building a new studio space in Queens, NY, while continuing to independently produce all their own music, art and even building their own guitars. With a new space and vision, the band produced their second LP, 'Take It From The Dead,' set to be co-released in June 2021 by Brooklyn’s Greenway Records and psych powerhouse Levitation's label, The Reverberation Appreciation Society. Following live / session albums from Dead Meadow, The Black Angels and Acid Mothers Temple, the forthcoming Acid Dad LP is the latest addition to our new partnership with Levitation/RAS – in which we'll be brining you special, exclusive pressings of the majority of their incoming releases.
'Take It From The Dead' features an array of different influences ranging from 90’s neo-psych, modern post-punk and 70’s rock-n-roll. Acid Dad has crafted a record that sounds new, yet feels nostalgic. In contrast to their earlier work, they make use of slower tempos and expand their sound to include songs that are both more intricate and more hypnotic. To accompany the new record, the band spent the last year collaborating with video artist Webb Hunt, producing psych and glitch art videos that form a visual counterpart to the dreamy distortions of their sound.
