Editorial Reviews

S.T.R.E.E.T. D.A.D. is a joyous celebration of the place where rock and dance subcultures meet. Like Stereolab and Labradford before them, this Brooklyn-via-San-Francisco group has the good sense to steal from relatively obscure sources (so that the young ones who don't know any better will think they're "original"). More important, they take those influences--ESG, Liquid Liquid, and Pell Mell among them--and do interesting, inventive stuff with what they've found (so that geezer hipsters are pleased). Out Hud is the very best of a wave of acts that spent 2002 partying like it was 1981. They take a Mudd Club-like cross-cultural approach, weaving funk, disco, and new wave with a harder, more experimental post-punk vibe. It's New Order meets Durutti Column, and you're even more liable to like it if that reference means nothing to you. --Mike McGonigal

5.0 out of 5 stars Freakishly Phenomenal Debut! November 24, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I don't think there's really any way to express the abject astonishment I received when I first turned on this cd. It is by far the greatest cd to be printed this year. My earlier favorite was the Akufen album, My Way, on the Force Inc. label, but this is just so terrifically good, I can't resist telling you it's the best album of the year, as far as I'm concerned.
These 6 songs are among the most adventurous and thrilling tracks in the experimental, or post-rock genre. They make it look easy, but we know from the many many bands that have cropped up in the years since Tortoise put out its first full length, that it is not easy to rock the experimental.
I would suggest, without putting undo pressure on the members of Out Hud, that if they keep on making music this good they will rival Can as the most brilliant avant rock group. The music on Street Dad has all the playfulness, originality, and carefully structured force of Can's Tago Mago album, and all the beauty of it too.
As the somewhat jaded employee critic has suggested, a lot of the sounds on this album hark to the 80's era indie rock, the Cure, Soft Cell, Talk Talk, Sonic Youth and so on. But these are turned on their head, mashed up in the development of some of the most incredible, 21st century instrumental compositions I've heard. Out Hud are like nothing from the 80's, but you can't help hearing a respect for the more avant-garde sounds from that decade, as well as the one before and after it.
Nothing on this album fails at sounding organic. The live drums and the drum programming are both effortless and unique. Every instrument sounds perfect, and nothing is overdone.
This is an excited album, energetic, confident, and never misses a step. This is a band to watch, but more importantly, a band that has released its first masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD, great band November 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I got to see Out Hud when I was visiting Boston. This wasn't my first exposure to them, but it cemented my appreciation of them. I was curious to see how they made their music, and imagine my surprise when I saw they had a cellist. Honestly, I thought that the strings sounds were synthesized in some way, so to see a cello made my day for some inexplicable reason. Besides, any band that can make hipsters in Boston dance (I saw this with my own eyes) has to be good. And not just good... I mean good.
I would recommend this CD to anyone who likes dance music but doesn't want to listen to inane house music. I would recommend this CD to anyone, really.
"Hair Dude, You're Stepping on My Mystique" and "Dad, There's a Little Thing Called Too Much Information" are some of the most danceable indie songs I've ever heard and manage to be upbeat without being irritatingly perky. This is not the CD to get for the candy raver in your life. Funk, disco, rock, and techno styles manage to fuse without making the band seem like pretentious indies who want to lord their musical knowledge over everyone else. They seem to actually enjoy making music, and Street Dad is more than proof of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instrumental Pop/Rock at its best April 6, 2005
By dtp
Format:Audio CD
Instrumental music never gets any attention. I've heard it a million times: "I don't like music without words". Miles Davis used to say music with lyrics tells you how to think, while instrumental music allows you to imagine on your own. With that in mind, you need to buy this!

Out Hud creates something of a hybrid of Durutti Column, New Order, Neu!, and Kraftwerk, to name just a few. The beats are danceable, the songs never repetitive. And odd touches like the cello in "The L Train...", along with bursts of odd noises, really make this and unusual and exciting listen. Taking a long road trip? Pop this disc in and bask in the cool beats of "Hair Dude.."

It's a pity music like this could never really be on the radio, and is relegated to cult listening. But if you join the cult, you won't ever want to leave. Fans of post punk, and other bands like LCD Soundsystem would be wise to check this out.

4.0 out of 5 stars hmmmm...??? November 22, 2003
By "l-mo"
Format:Audio CD
Just saw this group in SF, liked them and their energy so got the CD at the show. But, the CD was vastly different from what I saw on stage. Their stage show was definitely Stereolabish, especially with the two girls' vocal parts (on every song), but the CD doesn't have any vocals. Still, the CD is good, fresh, and I would highly recommend seeing them live!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Record of Year: Rock or Electronic February 1, 2003
By J. G. H
Format:Audio CD
The beauty of this record is that the combination of rock and electronic do not feel forced. The two genres blend together so effortlessly that it takes a style all its own. I'm like the one reviewer who has never heard the "obvious" yet obscure influences. But who fookin cares! This is intelligent dance music without being boring and too technical. It's intelligent but a thouroughly enjoyable adventure. It seems to build all this tension until the climax/resolution of the brilliantly titled "The L train is a swell train and I don't want to hear you indies complain". Inspiring instrumental!

5.0 out of 5 stars gorgeous, makes you want to stand up and yell September 1, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Remember the first time you ever heard New Order (if you're over 30), or my Bloody Valentine? This is that good--- blow off your dinner plans and lay on the floor and listen good. Stay in your car to hear more even though it's 95 degrees and you have no air conditioner good. Track 5 will knock your socks off if ya got socks ta knock, yo.
