4.0 out of 5 stars REPULSIVE LOVE, 19 Aug 2005
This review is from: The Repulsion Box (Audio CD)
SONS AND DAUGHTERS The Repulsion Box
Domino Records. 10 tracks.
Domino Records have done more than most indie labels to help showcase contemporary Blues influenced music; Archie Bronson Outfit, The Kills, The Blueskins and now Sons And Daughters (who somehow manage to mix the Blues with Punk, Folk and The Smiths, and still stop things from boiling over). This debut offering from the Sons starts quietly (the calm before the storm you might say) with the folksy 'Medicine' and 'Red Receiver' but from Seven Nation Army-rip 'Hunt' onwards you'll find the most strident and atmospheric collection of songs since the last Von Bondies outing. Centre stage is grabbed with both hands (and probably clamped in her jaw as well) by female lead Adele Bethel, who's vocals at first offend the listener but gradually attracts them to the point of full blossomed love (just like the start of any lasting relationship)... you can't help but become enthralled by the venom in Adele's petulant voice (she not so much sings but SHOUTS at you - again like any lasting relationship - to the point where you begin to wipe the spit from your face). Mention must be made too of the notable guitar work throughout, which really does give this collection much greater depth and drive, where it could so easily have faltered as snotty indie/punk-lite. Like the best releases from the Dominos stable, this collection is dark, intense and relentless catchy... what else could you possibly want from music today?
