FIDLAR: Forget It Dad, Life’s All Right

—by , September 22, 2015

Los Angeles-based garage punk band, FIDLAR, is made up of Zac Carper (rhythm guitar, vocals), Elvis Kuehn (lead guitar, vocals), Max Kuehn (drums), and Brandon Schwartzel (bass, backing vocals). The quartet’s name is based off a skater mantra, which was passed onto them from Carper’s former roommates; it means, “Forget It Dad, Life’s All Right.” Their new album, Too, was released earlier this month via Mom + Pop, and it was produced by Jay Joyce. “40oz. On Repeat,” one of the songs off their new album, is raw garage band at its finest. The music video is an homage to many old videos that were shown on MTV’s TRL, such as Beastie Boys’ “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party).” You can watch FIDLAR live at Union Transfer on Sept. 24 in Philadelphia, PA and NYC on Sept. 26 at Webster Hall.
