"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.

Listen to the first single from Alex Napping's sophomore album, Mise En Place

Posted on February 7th, 2017

Austin lovelies, Alex Napping, are our newest additions to the Father/Daughter team. Fresh off the heels of their 2016 releases, Trembles Parts I and II, the group tests out their new dynamic sound with their next record, Mise En Place. They share with us their first single, "Living Room" - a moody and honest look into the feelings that come with inviting someone new into your life and into a place that could be real or just made up. Stereogum wrote an awesome piece about the new track here, so peep that if you just love alternative rock and roll publications and need some cool content in your life.

Pre-order the record on Bone and Cyan A-side/B-side wax or on Black wax on our store or our bandcamp page, and hit up Sports Day Records for a copy of Mise En Place on cassette!



Diet Cig wrote a new album! And it's coming out! Soon!

Posted on January 20th, 2017

That's right. Our besties in Diet Cig are releasing their first full-length in just a few months! Swear I’m Good At This is the first full-length from the band and accumulates their tenacity for crafting life-affirming, relatable tales with a gutsy heart at their core. Luciano has the ability to write lyrics that are both vulnerable and badass, perfecting a storm of emotive reflection that creates a vision of a sweaty, pumped-up room screaming these lines in unison. The folks at Pitchfork featured the track "Tummy Ache" on their site, calling the songwriting a sentimental and relatable mix of lo-fi indie pop. Diet Cig make it okay to be the hot mess that you are.

Nab a copy on wax or on CD at the Frenchkiss Records store or a limited edition red and gold glitter cassette from our store here! Stream "Tummy Ache" the first single from their new record below.



Listen to the first single from Hiccup's very first full-length

Posted on January 19th, 2017

Life is about doing new things, trying new things, and listening to new things. Why not take a dive into Hiccup's upcoming debut record Imaginary Enemies? We put out the Hiccup cassingle almost two years ago, and since then the band has been ferociously writing, playing shows, and mastering their craft. The newest single "Teasin'" displays signs of their maturity as a band and their skill in creating songs with both pop hooks and relentless pop-punk riffing. Imaginary Enemies, Hiccup's debut full-length effort, was produced by Kyle Gilbride (Waxahatchee, Swearin', All Dogs), and will be released on Father/Daughter Records on March 24, 2017.

Pre-order Imaginary enemies here and stream "Teasin'" below.



Loose Tooth's Big Day out April 7th

Posted on January 18th, 2017

Father/Daughter and Lame-O are tag-teaming to release Big Day, Loose Tooth's sophomore album. After touring for the last few years and playing countless local shows, the members in Loose Tooth have spun together a true cohesive piece that represents where the band stands on their sound and message. Being noisy, poppy, and heavy all the same time is a tough feat to master, but Loose Tooth has done the dang thing. Pre-order Big Day here and stream "Garlic Soup" below.
