Alex Alexander I fell in love with My Dad vs. Yours when I first discovered their album "After Winter Must Come Spring". This album is different, with shorter songs that are often more upbeat and a bit more pop-oriented, but it feels so fresh and the production value is definitely stepped up from their first record. The music video for Happy Wanderer/Carry the Weight is especially worth checking out! Favorite track: Carry the Weight.

about

Little Symphonies
After three years of building songs up, then carving them back down to their essentials, My Dad vs Yours has broken the post-rock mould into sparkling gems. Their second full-length album, Little Symphonies, is built around philosophies of pop music by balancing aesthetic and practical landscapes influenced by Phil Spector’s “wall of sound". And they've done it with style, using delicious layers of melody and samples that include analog synths, beat-boxing, local church bells (backed by road construction), family recordings and lush string arrangements. The album is more upbeat than its predecessor, with a pop-inspired intensity varnishing the band's careful instrumentation. This positive energy supports the album's overall message: that the small things matter, and that our everyday battles will ready us for whatever life throws our way.
