Disappointed Dad s/t OUT NOW!


The other release from GTG Fest weekend, here’s the debut album from Disappointed Dad! This low-key-on-the-internet-but-in-your-face-in-person quartet features members of The Plurals, The Fiction Junkies, Frank and Earnest, the Cartridge Family, Josh David and the Dream Jeans, etc etc. Here’s 10 songs mostly from the whacky mind of Josh David, filtered through open G tuned guitars and some garage rock rhythm partners. There’s a couple vaguely political and social justice songs in there too for good measure. Check it out!
