Cayetana - Hot Dad Calendar

Wednesday, 05 February 2014 Written by Huw Baines

When delivering his best of 2013 list to Punknews, Paint It Black’s Dan Yemin wasn’t afraid to talk up his adopted hometown. He said, simply: “Philadelphia owned this year. So proud. But please don't move here from Brooklyn and drive the rents up.”

He was, in fact, talking about Radiator Hospital’s excellent ‘Something Wild’ LP, but lurking in the background the whole time were a band capable of releasing its equivalent for this year. Cayetana, you see, have the potential to be very good indeed.

The ‘Hot Dad Calendar’ 7” follows up their well-received demo, which surfaced last year on Ifyoumakeit, and acts as their Tiny Engines debut and a forerunner for their first full-length.

The title track is a rough diamond; a short burst of slacker pop wrapped up in Augusta Koch’s endearingly earnest, soulful vocals and a sort of world-weary optimism: “Kid you’ll be ok, you’ll get better with age.”

Backed by Ella, a demo track that’s been given a new lick of paint, Hot Dad Calendar suggests that Cayetana will soon follow Radiator Hospital, Chumped and Swearin’ in making an alt-punk record to savour.

Although the average metal fan won’t exactly be in thrall to ‘90s romcom Jerry Maguire, it does contain a quote that’s pertinent here. At the conclusion of his passionately protracted monologue, Renee Zellweger famously tells Tom Cruise “you had me at hello.” Speaking with similar heart about this live offering, Stone Sour guitarist Josh Rand proclaimed, “We're extremely proud of the fact it's 100% live with absolutely no overdubs!”, before needlessly unveiling plenty of details about the release. Josh, you had us at ‘100% live.’
