My Son The Doctor is a pent-up Bushwick, Brooklyn indie rock band. Like Spoon, but younger and hotter, the 4-some consists of Brian Hemmert (vocals), Joel Kalow (guitar), John Mason (drums), and Matt Nitzberg (bass). When they’re not rocking, they’re busy being the best grandsons money can buy. Their first EP, Dad Time, came out in May 2020.

“We wanted Dancing In Your Basement to be the first song released off the EP because honestly we think it rips the hardest, and we want people stoked,” said drummer John Mason. “We’re beyond excited to be working with Paper Moon on this record, as well as our good friends over at Huntsville Records where we recorded.” 

“We also loved that there was a bass solo,” said bassist Matt Nitzberg, “which we should honestly have more of.”

My Son The Doctor feels like a thousand 12 year olds barreling out of packed movie theatre hyped up on cases of pixie sticks and soda pop.

An upbeat ode to letting loose with your friends via 90s-style grunge rock and dancing like nobody's watching.

My Son The Doctor do excel at drawing enticingly fragmentary but no-less-evocative-for-it sketches of various (likely) overeducated slacker types, like those so often found in ‘90s novels and songs and films. But with the crucial difference being that MSTD’s slackers seem to be having a grand ol’ time, free of all that ‘90s angst/lack of affect.

Genre-fluid and almost always up for a challenge, it’s as if they’ve settled on testing every genre in the book, and on their newest single, “Rubber Hands,” they’ve zeroed in on the intersection between punk and jazz.

A two minute divergent post punk rocker with proto punk affectations full of jagged proggy musical eruptions and a seriously strident vocal aesthetic.
