The main thing to know about this cd is that it shouldn't be in the grind section. Daughters have definately taken a step away from the grind/noise/hardcore band people fell in love with. This new attempt is a good musical effort, but the vocals are really love or hate. The only way to really experience the new Daughters is to check them out yourself; listen to fiery from their myspace to check out vocals. The weird mix of grindy instruments (yah i made up a word) and acid tripping elvis vocals can be entertaining if looked at in the right light.

The Number Twelve Looks Like You Mongrel
First time listening through, I can't help but think that this is the one cd i've purchased so far this year that has lived up to every expectation I've had for it. It brings together the sheer brutality of Put On Your Rosy Red Glasses and the technicality and vibe of Nuclear, Sad, Nuclear and still has the ability to thoroughly differentiate itself from both of the previously stated albums. The vocals have made progression, along with all the instrumentation. This entry is more technical, more brutal, and all around a great progression from the band. There is so much more in this that their previous music didn't offer (from clean singing vocals at the end of Sleeping With the Fishes, See? to an upbeat acoustic breakdown in Paper Weight Pigs). Don't hesitate to check this out.

Me and Him Call It Us Loss
Me and Him Call it Us has always stood out a bit for me, and I loved their first release. Well I loved the four actual songs from the first release, and the ambient filler wasn't really my thing. This new record has mix of spastic grindcore and heartfelt screamo that grasps you in from the first bloodcurdling scream, not to mention there are 14 actual songs this time (13 new songs and a re recording of Peter Jennings from their first cd). More chaotic, better production, more emotional, and definitely one of the better bands out there doing this type of music. Give a listen to Sarsaparilla, The Anticipation is Killing me, Cut-Throat Cardiac arrest, or P.S I love you to get a feel for the album.

Weatherbox American Art
A mixture of Hot Cross and Say Anything, with just enough math rock thrown in for good measure, Weatherbox creates a sound all their own. Mildly poppy and bouncy, with enough emotion to keep your attention for a good while. While it may suffer from awfully similar riffs from time to time, and songs that seem to go on slightly too long, American Art has substantially more pros than cons. The riffs may seem oddly similar at times, but Weatherbox has a way of changing things just enough to make each song seem fresh. The raw emotion of "Atoms Smash" sets the mood for the rest of the album, "Moments Before..." sounds like a modified Hot Cross song, and "Trippin the Life Fantastic" brings it to an end with a bouncy pop song. On top of that, they actually have something to say. Four out of five thumbs up.
