OTD is for the children

So whaddya want me to say? Happy Father's Day?

Quintaine Americana, "I'm Sorry" (mp3 you-send-it link)
Miltown, "Unraveling" (mp3, via Traktor7 site)

Thanks to Quintaine for signing off on on the link for this special Father's Day presentation of our favorite songs to sing to Dad. QA's song (that was a rare Mark Schleicher lead vocal) is from their 1996 CherryDicks Records debut Needles, an album that some of the new school Allston rock bands might enjoy. Now that dark, fucked-up indie-rock bands are dragging out their Joy Division and Jesus Lizard records again.

And Miltown's song about watching your dad cry is a demo from their aborted major-label debut, which would have made them huger than Foo Fighters if they hadn't broken up while making it. Jonah Jenkins, who was already semi-famous from Only Living Witness, went on to play in Milligram and is now in Raw Radar War.

If you reach this page after the QA link has timed out, you should just go buy the damn album. But even if you don't, we never want you to leave empty handed. Quintaine eventually became a very different kind of band, and this song below (a permalink!), from their most recent album Dark Thirty, is an OTD favorite:
