"Blue Hell", Pardoner's first single off their debut record, is available to stream now

Posted on June 20th, 2017


Pardoner brings their twist on 90s alt-rock and punk to the table with their debut record, "Uncontrollable Salvation", our upcoming release with the San Francisco 4-piece. "Blue Hell" takes the listener on a wild ride through unrelenting guitar riffs, heavy distortion, and timely drum fills. The rest of the record is a cohesive piece with songs that reflect influence from artists like Dinosaur Jr. and Polvo. Nab a limited edition vinyl variant of the record from our store while they're still available! "Uncontrollable Salvation" releases Sept. 8 of this year.


Listen to SOAR's first single off their first LP

Posted on June 13th, 2017

San Francisco and Oakland's own SOAR, a band with a composition of countless other Bay Area acts, is split-releasing their first full-length on Father/Daughter and Salinas Records! Stereogum wrote a nice piece about their first single, "Fort Funston" here. The record, "dark / gold", is 10 tracks lined with catchy harmonies and honest + personal lyrical matter. SOAR strikes a balance between something heavy and opaque, something melodic and bright, something ultimately unyielding. If you dig the single, why not pre-order a tape? "dark / gold" releases August 25th, 2017.


A statement from Father/Daughter Records

Posted on May 13th, 2017

To say the last few days have been heartbreaking and trying for us, as a community, would be an understatement. The allegations that have come out about PWR BTTM are unsettling and difficult to read and digest. We do not take this nor do we take any acts of violence lightly. Personally, this has brought up a lot for me as I have also experienced physical and verbal abuse by partners in the past. Victims and survivors need to be heard, considered and supported as opening up about such trauma is extremely difficult and emotionally taxing.

We have taken a few days to process, which allowed us to be emotionally available as sounding boards for all the other artists on the label. Father/Daughter is and always will be a community for artists to thrive and grow and their feelings are equally as valid and important as the two people who run the label. In lieu of the allegations, we are no longer selling PWR BTTM music and merchandise and we will be making donations to RAINN and the NCAVP in solidarity of all survivors.

If you ever feel unsafe, scared, or need someone to talk to, please call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800-656-HOPE.
