Sons of Daughters
Sons of Daughters (Meter Records)

By: Alex Steininger

To simply call Sons of Daughters a rock band would be far too limiting. The band does so much more. As proof, listen to their six-song, self-titled EP, which opens with a straight-ahead, guitar-soaked rocker ("Scripts and Stories") that makes you want to dance. But, from there they offer up the lighter, emotionally-charged indie-rock offering of "Anne-Marie" and the new-punk attack of "Hotter Than Heaven". The band is best, though, when they go straight for the glossy, well-produced modern-rock/pop ("Three Sheets"), which wouldn't sound of place on radio. If anything, the record suffers because of the band's lack of consistency in a sound. However, they're good musicians and are able to rock out and play loud, or keep it softer and hook-laden, as they prove here. One would hope, though, they focus more on their strong points when it comes time for a full-length. I'll give this a C+.
