Staff Pick: ‘Songs for Dads’ by The Walters

“Songs for Dads” is the debut project of indie rock band the Walters, hailing from Chicago. I found this EP on YouTube’s auto-generated video recommendations – you read that right – those things have gotten scarily good recently. The first track, “I Love You So,” somehow perfectly captures the feeling of loss and confusion after a hard break up in a totally unique way, despite it being one of the most covered topics in all of modern music. If you’re looking for a quality gateway into the vast underground world of lo-fi indie rock on YouTube and Bandcamp, this debut EP is for you.
