Problem Daughter (Dying Scene Records) premiere new tune “Constant Costanza” via Rigby Road Studios

It’s only been a few months since Salt Lake City punk act Problem Daughter put out their new EP “Fits of Disorganized Boredom” on Dying Scene Records but looks like we’ve already got a tasty nugget of a new song to jam from the lovable foursome. The fellas recently synched up with producer Joel Pack at Rigby Road Studios for his “First Friday” sessions to record a brand new track titled “Constant Costanza” and you can check out the tune along with a mini-documentary of the session below.

First Friday is Joel Pack’s passion project to bring in bands that otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to record at Rigby Road Studios. For each First Friday, they complete an entire song from start to finish in one day and video the whole creative process. The band leaves with a finished song and a video of the entire process to use as they please.

“At the end of the day, I do this because I love it! It’s great to work on a song without worrying about budget restraints.” -Joel Pack (Owner, Producer)

Album Review: Problem Daughter – “Fits of Disorganized Boredom”

I love Problem Daughter. They’re one of those rare bands that come out of nowhere and slap you in the face with their art, daring you to doubt all the good music being made in this big old world. They come from Salt Lake City and their album Fits of Disorganized Boredom is one of the best things I’ve heard in a long time. It has the relentless hooks of Junior Battles, coupled with the more mature melodic punk stylings of The Flatliners, all fit into the loose mold of post-hardcore song structure– where songs have parts, but aren’t necessarily beholden to verse/chorus.

It’s exciting, volatile music that is immediately arresting because its weirdness relative to its genre. Hooks are everywhere, but they’re packed into an odd package of transitions and prominent bass and busy guitar work. First song, “O Bother, Where Art Thou?,” is one of the more traditionally structured of the bunch, and one of the best. Its chorus is massive and meaty and falls off the tongue as soon as it falls in the ears. “Alda, Small Things” has rushed vocal lines over electric guitars along with a busy bassline that works in tandem with the guitars. Gang vocals layer over the main line. Lyrics work themselves up into screams. It reminds me of Morning Glory, with all of their extravagances, steeped in the world of pop punk. “My Other House Is a Meth Lab” is one of the weirder tracks, transitioning into some light reggae at one point, before going back into some darker punk rock brooding and then into a big shout-along chorus. It’s a highlight on an album of highlights.

Crazy fun music is Problem Daughter’s game and I could probably dedicate time to what I like about each song and the review would run to novella length and no one would read it. So, I’m going to talk about the elephant in the room real quick, because the elephant is an incredible jam that stands as an instant classic. “Like a Dog.” Holy shit, “Like a Dog.” The song begins with a thumping bass line and sparse guitar tones before transitioning into the songs meaty riff. The drums keep things steady, but also set the tone of walking bravely toward transcendence. It’s almost the beat of a slow march. Undeniably the masterpiece of Fits of Disorganized of Boredom, “Like a Dog” encompasses dark, confessional lyrics put to ascending melodies and one of the finest choruses I’ve heard in a long time.

There’s thousands of cities out there, and there’s even more punks. These people, who believe in the power of DIY, the power of music, and most of all the power of community– these people are the ones making the art we consume and love. They’re centered around local scenes across the world. Check your backyard, you might have some pretty great stuff being born under the radar as we speak. This makes punk self-sustaining. It’s rock music put back into the hands of whoever wants to make it. And in Problem Daughter’s case, it’s wild and catchy and ambitious. But make no mistake, it all comes from somewhere.

5/5

Discover some great new punk bands through the latest Wiretap Records free compilation

Free compilations have always been the best way to make new music discoveries in the opinion of this humble punk enthusiast. Admittedly, there are a lot of shitty ones out there but the Winter 2016 comp from Wiretap Records isn’t one of them. It skews a little indie at points but there are a lot of great up and coming punk bands on here worthy of your attention including Spanish Love Songs, Civil War Rust, UnderTipper and even Dying Scene Records act Problem Daughter, just to name a few. There’s even an acoustic cover of Offspring’s “The Kids Aren’t All Right” worthy checking out.

Here’s a little note from Wiretap founder Rob Castellon about the comp:

“We started doing the Wiretap comps in 2014 as a way to help promote the bands on our roster, but also sort of test the waters on bands we were hoping to work with down the line. I still actively listen to some of the samplers/comps I received in the late 90’s/00’s and like many, learned about so many new bands from them. If you don’t find at least 5 bands on here that you get excited about… there’s something seriously wrong. Bands in all genres of punk, indie, ska, post/punk, emo, etc are doing some exciting things today.”

Problem Daughter sign to Dying Scene Records for release of new album “Fits Of Disorganized Boredom”

Four days ago I received an email from a band I’d never heard of imploring me to give their newly recorded album a listen. It’s by no means an uncommon occurrence and for perhaps the ten-thousandth time I dutifully plugged in my headphones, clicked a play button and prepared to halfheartedly listen while I moved on to the next email. Thirty seconds in I had to stop typing and turn up the volume. By the end of the first song I suspected I had stumbled onto something special and by the third song I was sending the album off to a few trusted DS reviewers demanding they check it out. When the sixth song literally gave me goosebumps I decided I desperately wanted to put the album out on Dying Scene Records.

So, today, after a flurry of phone calls and emails, it is with great pleasure that I announce Salt Lake City punk act Problem Daughter will be releasing their sophomore album Fits Of Disorganized Boredom through Dying Scene Records on February 24th.

In regards to the band’s sound, think the melodic earnestness of a Flatliners meets Banner Pilot but with the grand, incendiary arrangements of Morning Glory. Confused? Just judge for yourself by streaming the album’s first track “O Bother, Where Art Though?” below.
