    Daughters

    pretty sad i didn't make it to Rhode Island for the Daughters reunion show(s) this past weekend. my friend went to the second show and said it was amazing.

    here's a short write-up of the show that made me even more sad that i didn't make it.

    i saw them back in 2006, and it was one definitely of the more memorable shows i've ever attended.

    their third, self-titled album is about to be re-released on vinyl, and i'm quite excited.

    any other fans here?

    some of my favorite songs:

    Daughters is one of my FAVORITE bands and was HUGE influence on my band I had my senior year through freshman year of college. They were also one of the best live shows I've ever seen in my entire life. There was something dangerous about them and they had a sound like no other. Canada Songs is so grind and Locust like....but Hell Songs took that aggressive writing and matched with Jesus Lizard like vocals and it just made them have so much of a better sound.

    I actually was extremely disappointed by self titled and still don't understand the praise it receives. It went for a more tamer sound and I think the production was really bad on it. I can see why people enjoy it but it just wasn't for me, the drums sound less heavy and mixed poorly and it just have the technical side of things that I LOVED on Hell Songs. I don't think I ever listened to an album as much as I did in 2006 with Hell Songs.

    @eversonpoe, I'm pretty sure you saw them on the same tour I did. I believe We Came As Romans, Russian Circles and Lords opened up for them?

    I also saw them in 2008 and while I don't remember too much from that show, I know it was just as insane as my first time with Daughters. I REALLY hope they decide to continue to play together and tour. I cannot stand Alex's new band "Fucking Invincible" (very static and boring hardcore music) and Fang Island hasn't really impressed me since the first album. I would love to relive my "core" and scene days and see them one more time!

    i understand why people DON'T like self-titled, but i still love it. the emotional content just really gets under my skin. hell songs will always be my favorite, though.

    (i also love the locust...saw them 7 or 8 times, mostly in high school)

    the tour i saw them on, they were opening for red sparowes, so it was right before the tour with russian circles (which i'm SO PISSED that i missed). i didn't know red sparowes at the time, either, so i didn't even stay for their set (which sucks, because i LOVE THEM).

    i don't like fucking invincible or fang island at all :/

    anyway, the locust, daughters, and many of john zorn's projects were huge influences on most of the music i made in high school. i should show you some of that stuff, you'd probably love it.

    Yeah, Hell Songs is great. Self titled just has moments that don't do anything for me while HS gives me goosebumps throughout the entire record. I will say the last track on self titled is flawless though and I think I remember hearing that live in 2008...I could be wrong though.

    I love the Locust as well! I saw them in 2007 at a rare St. Louis show where they got their stuff stolen after the gig. =/ Fang Island was DECENT at best on their first record...I like the "AW YEAH, HIGH FIVE GUYS" mentality of the record and it seemed like a party. It's nowhere near the caliber of Daughters material though.

    I'll never forget the first time I saw Daughters too. Alex had longer hair at the time and I remember I went up to him before the show and he was sitting at one of those table poker machines and we started talking about Hell Songs and the backlash it was getting from some of the older fans because of the vocals. We talked about his old band As the Sun Sets and I wished him luck for the night. As the show started, as obvious with shows like that...it was nuts...Alex was all over the place and doing his "Mitch Hedberg" uncomfortable frontman thing as the crowd was going bat shit. I was front row and singing along to every song...but I'll never forget during the bridge in "Fiesty Snakewoman"....he looked at me and said "Now this guy....this guy is gonna sing the next part for y'all" and I started sweating like crazy cause it was the only part I didn't know off the whole record as to what Alex says. Now the lyrics are "She'll sell you the road but she won't point the way home..." when Alex gave me the mic I mumbled...

    "Selma dell she won't point road yawn"

    ...Alex laughed and took the mic away and said "This guy doesn't know what he's talking about...never get directions from him!" I was a little embarrassed but it didn't matter as when the song went back into crazy mode, a stage diver almost took me out. Two years later I was front row again for a Daughters show and in between songs, my drunk friend heckled me to Alex and said "Remember him? He didn't remember the words..." Alex looked at me and patted me on the shoulder and said in the microphone "Hey, just do what I do when I don't remember things...don't sing."

    I just listened this song (and this band) for the first time last night after seeing the new album getting lots of hype and now I feel I need to hear this album ASAP. Plan on listening to it today, but I was surprised at how hard I had to look to find a thread on these guys. From that one song alone it felt like a very ets-friendly band.



    So what do the super fans think about this new album and how does it compare to their previous efforts?

    Just started listening to them this year and love the new album. Not a seasoned fan to judge albums, but can vouch for them putting on a sick live show. Psyched to see them again in March \m/

    On my second listen through now and I've got to say, it lives up to the hype. Now I have to try to hunt down the vinyl which seems to be sold out everywhere.

    Just finished listening to their first 3 albums and god damn they are QUICKLY becoming one of my favorite bands. Gotta give it a few more spins, but I wanna say self-titled is almost as good as YWGWYW. Reissue when????

    Just adding it to the list of records that have been reissued and the reissue is almost as rare as the original pressings. Fingers crossed it gets another reissue soon.

    Might have to catch the SF show. Health was a lot of fun when I saw them in April. Great bill for sure.
