i still don’t know what the national or war on drugs sound like. all those other albums are boring so i think it’s ok i avoided them. someone post their quintessential tracks tho.

As a dad I can confirm I've rocked to most of those albums but are all pretty old. Most are classics of the genre sure.

If you're looking for new dad rock, this Dad will point you in the direction of Rolling Coastal Blackout Fever.

- Wilco
- Jonathan Wilson (was a good suggestion)
- Dawes
- Jason Isbell
- The National
- here a fucktonne of abysmal canadian hoot indie/millennial whoopcore like The Strumbellas, Reuben and the Dark, etc

Speaking as an old but not a dad, I don't even know what qualifies as new dad rock. I guess The National makes sense, but Death Cab for Cutie? Is We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes making its way onto the new Indie Dad Rock canon?

As a dad I just listen to Neil Young because I don't have the mental capacity for anything else

i will answer this question based on what my friends who wear nice scrump corduroys who are currently wife guys and definitely want to be dads listen to

wilco/war on drugs/phoebe bridgers/angel olsen: absolutely unequivocally dad rock although i will always have a soft spot for the experimentalism on YHF, which i first listened to when i was like 14

death cab: hell no, nothing remotely in the emo/pop punk nexus will ever be dad rock. too many youth-exclusive cultural associations

wild nothing: no band that ever played firetrap nyc diy venues where people drank room temperature PBR will ever be dad rock

real estate: the band that defies the above categorical statement

also, lmao did chris ott really coin the term? i thought it was a much older term than that

this is obviously a question that depends greatly upon how much weight you put upon the aural aesthetic factors versus extramusical/cultural factors tho

i guess i generally tend to believe the former is more important because the latter is not sufficiently descriptive (e.g., in this case, "anything dads listen to," or in the case of indie rock, "any rock music released on an independent record label")
