    The wiry melodies clanked out by guitarists Lindsay Baker and Chris Diken, which surge and retreat on alternating waves of furious feedback and bright-eyed jangle as hopped-up drummer Robbie Guertin holds down the rhythm section, strongly recall an unheralded period in rock history that's suddenly considered legendary.

    The energy and quality of this record are nothing short of addicting–indicative of a promising future for a young band.

    The album is deceptively simple. Upon the first listen, it feels like a collection of fairly commonplace, but good, indie pop tracks that have a strong tendency towards the, well, radical.

    There are plenty of good songs on Mega Rama (Uninhabitable Mansions), the debut album by Radical Dads, and one great one.

    You'd expect a fuzz-heavy, distortion-laden outing from this crew, and you'd be right, yet the band's sound is oddly flat.
