Words by Erin Wolf

Controlled discord takes skill and We Are Your Father are pros. The local three-piece shreds messily, distortion and fuzz cranked up to the utmost, quickly snapping their haphazard melodies back into tight, harmonic alignment. Blues, funk and straightforward rock rattle the covers of their recently-released, self-titled EP.

Recorded last Spring by Shane Hochstetler at Howl Street Recordings, We Are Your Father’s collection of songs is melodic but raw, using mid-range guitar sounds and drums heavy on the kick and toms for a relentless energy. Add soulful tenor from guitarist/vocalist Wolfgang, and the swagger created by the instrumentation goes from mere riffing to solid rock songs.

We Are Your Father plays the Cactus Club (2496 S. Wentworth) this Saturday with At Latl and Common Loon.  10 p.m. 21+
