Hockey Dad
$12

Australian punks Hockey Dad play surf-infused pop with lovesick melodies, crafty garage-rock riffage, and harmonic interplay. With 2016’s Boronia, vocalist/guitarist Zach Stephenson and drummer Billy Fleming fill the empty spaces with layers of gooey, beachside rock, and exhibit the sort of innate songwriting chemistry that stems from being friends and neighbors since their childhood in the ’90s. Though there isn’t much flash to the pair’s aural onslaught, songs like “Jump the Gun” and “Can’t Have Them” allude to good times free of anything super cerebral. Hockey Dad turns up the fuzz on songs as saccharine as “Hunny Bunny” and “I Need a Woman,” but they seem to prefer cruising in the middle lane. Sometimes that’s exactly what the doctor ordered, especially on a Monday night. RJP
