A bit of a Maritime pop-punk supergroup featuring members of The Varsity Weirdos, The Hemingways and The Fat Stupids, Weekend Dads deliver four anthems whose seeming bravado and energy belie their middle-aged melancholia. How else can you describe a band that shouts lyrics like “Why don’t we all throw in the towel?” I don’t want to write that a song called “Desperation Mart”---the standout track on this record---encapsulates desperation and hopelessness, but I am going to because it does. Weekend Dads write pop-punk songs that could only come from people who’ve seen relationships dissolve over and over and those songs are fucking good.
