Radical Dads are the Gowanus, Brooklyn-based trio of Lindsay Baker, Chris Diken, and Robbie Guertin (formerly of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah). In addition to pumping out great pop jams accompanied by only the most excellent artwork, the band professes their appreciation for “gummy snacks, hitting the fizz, snoozin’ on Sundays, meditation, meditating on pizza, pizza itself, sunglasses, friends, all-time peace, and the search for the attainment of the transcendence of coolness.” We can get behind that. Oh, and the music rules, too. Here, we present an additional video from their recent session, featuring a performance of title track from their latest album.
Snowden’s mastermind and songwriter, Jordan Jeffares, crafted the long-awaited followup to the critically-acclaimed debut LP, Anti-Anti, through touring and moving the project’s home base multiple times, ultimately landing in Austin, TX. No One In Control demonstrates how the band’s sound changed in these years, abandoning some of its early dance party vibe for a more developed, mature stance, producing sounds perhaps more appropriate for solitary enjoyment via headphones than on a dancefloor full of sweaty hipsters, thus carving out a niche beyond its initial influences.
