Emotional Response at Suburban Voice

Bad Daddies’ side is loud ‘n fuzzy ‘n catchy, especially for the last song, “It’s Not You.” There’s a wicked hook on the chorus, both musically and in Camylle’s vocal. “Stay True” is also quite tuneful, following the 22 second opening burst of “War.” Hard Left are from Oakland but you might mistake them for a UK band with their boisterous street punk. Gruff vocals spouting out populist sentiments, accompanying the sharp ‘n brash sounds. A winnah, as we say in Massachusetts.

Flagstaff label, Emotional Response, released this split EP on limited edition (color) vinyl back in November, but lucky for us, there are still some copies available because I was a little late cluing in to this local label. Bad Daddies and Hard Left are both bands from the Bay Area, but I can definitely see why they were selected to appear on this split release: both are badass. Bad Daddies are as fierce as they are fun. They kick off the album with the twenty-second track, “War”, before launching into two full tracks. “Festering Brine” by the Bad Daddies is my favorite track from the release, but Hard Left delivers some powerful punches with “Stay True” and “It’s Not You”. Hard Left has a gruffer punk sound reminiscent of the genre’s earlier impulses. You can still get your hands on the limited edition vinyl if you order sooner rather than later and the split is available for preview from Emotional Release Records here.
