Daughter's bamdcamp page

Comparisons:

Hard to pinpoint, but they have things in common with The Moon Seven Times, Mazzy Star, maybe even Sigur Rós a bit. (JoAnn Whetsell)

Covers/own material:

Own

General comments:

NPR wrote, "Achingly pretty and melancholy, Daughter's music conjures a pitch-perfect mix of gloom, desire and hostility." Not sure about the "hostility," but otherwise this seems a perfectly apt description to me. (JoAnn Whetsell)

Recommended first album:

Any

Recordings:


His Young Heart

Release info:

2011

Availability:

Wide

Ecto priority:

Highly recommended

Comments:

Melancholy doesn't seem to be quite the right word for this four-track EP, neither does haunting. Moody doesn't quite fit either. But it's something in that vein, somewhere in that landscape. It's lovely, mostly acoustic, and I can listen to it on repeat without losing any interest. (JoAnn Whetsell)

One of the best albums of the year. (christina_skov@hotmail.com)

Comments:

Judging from last year's Daughter EPs, I would have expected much more of this album. If you want to listen to Daughter, you should just get the EPs and skip this. (raschee@gmail.com)

I love this album. It builds on the EPs (one track, "Youth" carries over from The Wild Youth) and develops their sound with even more influences. "Lifeforms" and "Tomorrow" remind me a lot of The Moon Seven Times, for instance. (JoAnn Whetsell)

One of the best albums of the year. (stjarnell@yahoo.com, christina_skov@hotmail.com)
