4.0 out of 5 stars Dance me in 15 Jan 2006
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
One of the most unique young bands of the last year is Sons and Daughters, a Scottish band that sets Celtic folk rhythms in a swirl of punk-rock. And in their stunning debut album "Repulsion Box," one of the best songs is the hard-edged, organic dance tune "Dance Me In."

This single/EP kicks off with the title track: energetic, sparse and full of steely bounciness, like a rubber ball studded with spikes. Adele Bethel sings in an angelic, rapid-fire manner: "Remind me of the young/just dance me in!" It sounds like a Scottish reel during the height of punk.

It includes another song from the "Love the Cup" EP, the dark, intense, swirling rocker "Blood." The song's instrumentation is good enough, but that hypnotic chant of "you're in my bloooood/my blooood" is chilling.

Along with these two album tracks, there are three songs not included on either the EP or the full-length album, which explore Sons and Daughters' folkier side, and show that rock isn't all they can do. "Come in Out of the Rain" is a bouncy little guitar ditty accompanied by tambourines and claps, and "Poor Company" is an enchanting, low-key little ballad. "Drunk Medicine" follows "Blood's" example with a hypnotic, sparse beat filled with low, drawn-out singing.

The "Dance Me In" single definitely illustrates Sons and Daughters' strengths, by including two of their best songs, one from each release. But it's a great place for newbies of the band to get acquainted with their sound, both the folkiness and the dark, edgy rock. By the end of the final song, you're left yearning for more.

And their sound is especially refreshing in a musical era where every other band is copying Joy Division, the Rolling Stones, and other classic rock bands.

Format:Audio CD|Amazon Verified Purchase
This 5-track EP (plus a video) from the States serves as an illustrative commentary of the recordings of this rambunctious Glaswegian four piece. All five tracks are unique to the various formats of Dance Me In but many make connections to other releases.

The first three tracks were produced by Edwyn Collins at his London studio in August 2004 and were released separately on a UK CD single. Dance Me In appears in a newer recording on the album The Repulsion Box produced by Victor Van Vugt, but this version is possibly the more commercial sounding. Come In Out Of The Rain is unusual for the band in that it is a fine cover version of a song first recorded by Parliament, not a band one would necessarily associate with Sons and Daughters, but the song is quite transformed in their hands. Blood is a return to a song that first turned up on their acclaimed 2003 mini-album Love The Cup, showing how it has evolved over two years of live performance.

The other two tracks are to be found on the second UK CD single and are fascinating examples of works in progress. Although the US EP's audio running time is just 13:42 that must have been considered just too much value for money in rip-off Britain by the powers that be, and so split into two releases. Drunk Medicine comes from the early demo sessions for The Repulsion Box album in Cologne, in January 2005, and turned up in a less acoustic form on the album under the title Medicine. Finally, Poor Company is another demo, this time from the sessions of Summer 2003 at Chem19 in Hamilton, Scotland that led to Love The Cup, though the song appears not to have been used.

All in all, an entertaining and varied mini-collection that would make an excellent introduction to the band.

And their sound is especially refreshing in a musical era where every other band is copying Joy Division, the Rolling Stones, and other classic rock bands. This one goes back to the pre-rock roots -- yes, they use Celtic folk rhythms. But they do give it originality, freshness and creativity -- they give it fresh "Blood."

Adele Bethel sounds like a sullen angel in the rockier songs, before switching to a more fragile, soft style by the end. She's also joined by Scott Paterson, who sings flawless harmony, and occasionally yells "wanna be my LOVER?" Their guitar skills are joined by explosive bass and percussion, and even a mandolin here and there.

"Dance Me In" is a good place for people to get acquainted with Sons and Daughters, but fans will want to hear the folkier side of this talented young band. Dance me in!
