Isn't Wilco what dad rock originally referred to? I feel like they can't be "new" dad rock

Father John Misty seems like a good addition

i know people on here have an affection for the national and it seems like a dad marker (even if you're not a dad) to enjoy the tone of that music. because it sounds boring as shit to me

i was a big mac demarco stan but almost none of it i would associate with being a responsible adult human. even if the music is in line with other "dad rock" luminaries

I don't know any dads who listen to Nocturne but good for them if they do!
And I feel like this year is really about, just the year of realizing stuff.

your dad being 70 removes him from the realm of dad rock and into grampa rock.

I feel like he doesn't have a high enough profile to be canonical "dad rock," but to me Jonathan Wilson has this sound down to a science. So much so that he played David Gilmour on Roger Waters' last tour. The very id of dad rock:

I wasnt aware of his music but he did a great job of ersatz Dave Gilmour when I saw Roger's show

Man that was a good concert

That's fair, tbh it feels like guitar music by this has fallen by the wayside so much that anything close could be dad rock now. Like from 2019 I guess Father of the Bride is the most popular dad rock album?

in the 1990s, dad used to cry in the car listening to "the needle and the damage done"

in the 2020s, dad cries in the zoom chat listening to "needle in the hay"

Thinking about it, and based on the number of obvious dads I see sporting their shirts, the most current dad rock band is Whitney

'boxer' is the soundtrack to selling all of your real estate at age 40 and phonebanking for the bernie sanders campaign. good album imo.
