My Son The Doctor





My Son The Doctor channel summers past and present on "Blue Tank Tops"

It’s easy to find joy in the unbridled drive of My Son The Doctor, whose latest single “Blue Tank Tops” is an indie rock vamp tailor-made for our recollective summer. Between vignette one-liners about “East Side women talking blue chip stocks” and “local pool boys” triumphant garage rock shreds with a healthy mix of discord and polish. While such seasonal non-sequiturs seemingly endow the song with a nostalgic energy, there’s a forward-focused outlook present in Brian Hemmert’s lyrics, a quasi-implication that, with each summer to come and go,there will always idle pool party chit-chat and blue tank tops — and maybe that’s something worth looking forward to. Give the track a listen below, and keep an eye out for the band’s upcoming EP Dad Time, out later this year. Photo by Elizabeth Lopiccolo

PREMIERE: My Son the Doctor explode outwards on debut single "Dancing In Your Basement"

Despite currently being pent-up in Bushwick, indie quartet My Son the Doctor demonstrate they know how to have a good time in small spaces on debut single “Dancing In Your Basement.” A raucous ripping two minute track driven by frontman Brian Hemmert’s lilting, expressive vocal performance and driving garage instrumentation, the song is four pounds of kickass in a two pound bag, a concise, blood-pumping vamp wherein the band can tout their cohesive, breakneck rock sound. These adrenaline-pumping acrobatics are in large part the goal for the group, because when they’re not dropping cryptic, weirdly prescient philosophical tidbits in the middle of a chorus (the lyric “time is such a foreign substance” took on new meaning for many this week), My Son The Doctor’s primary focus is jazzing you the hell up. “We wanted ‘Dancing In Your Basement’ to be the first song released off the EP because, honestly, we think it rips the hardest, and we want people stoked,” said drummer John Mason. Mission well accomplished — stream our premiere of the track below, and keep an eye out for their EP Dad Time, out May of this year. Photo by Brian Stoothoff
