Hockey Dad "Blend Inn (Kanine/Gaga)"
Sometimes the press for a new album makes defining the band’s sound easy. But even then, it can be are to come up with the band comparisons these blurbs are famous for (wait… they’re NOT famous!?!). Anyway, the press for Australian band Hockey Dad’s sophomore album Blend Inn made the sound-alike part of this blurb super easy. In an interview with Consequence Of Sound, Zach Stephenson specifically listed the songs that directly influenced the writing and recording of this LP. AC/DC’s “Jailbreak” Nirvana’s “Come As You Are” Twin Peak’s “Butterfly ”Iggy Pop’s “I’m Bored ”The Growlers’ “Neverending Lin.” All that PLUS the band’s name is an excellent Simpsons reference? Plus, is it just me, or does Zach’s voice sound like a modern day Billy Squire? Ignore my gratuitous use of the word “plus” and decide for yourself how huge a Hockey Dad fan you are when you check out “Homely Feeling.”
