With a strapping, able-bodied set of songs and a road tested concert presence to boot, the seething, slightly wicked proceedings offered here serve notice that Glasgow’s native Sons and Daughters
are a band you frankly need to know about. When singer Adele Bethel
quotes Leonard Cohen, you know she does so not as a casual observer, but rather a studied disciple of the legend’s hardened, leathered songwriting. It’s written all over this band’s body of work.
Recorded at Domino
’s ’08 SXSW Showcase in Austin, this no nonsense, professionally polished video captures exactly what’s to love about this band. Fierce, momentous, propelled like a hot rod’s exploding engine; Sons and Daughters are oh so serious business. - David Pitz
