- Vampire Hands & Daughters Of The Sun by Vampire Hands & Daughters Of The Sun
Split LP from these two "related" bands, I know not how related they are. Is it a mere second-cousin-twice-removed situation or full blown insesticide? Whatever, th' Hands do fairly American sounding, steady indie rock with a raw, bluesey guitar sound and a nasally drawl hogging the space where a voice should be. I don't know why but for some reason I'm reminded of Tapes n' Tapes or some lost, dusty midwestern college rock band. The flip is dominated by one sweet lengthy jam from Daughters....that I'm confident would sound astonishing amped up in a room full of red-eyed bong chongers but is initially somewhat lost in this harried office (the Beady Eye single has just landed, hurrah for Liam & co.; true British talent flexing it's collective muscle ;0}) The drums sound great though, steady,tribal & hypnotic. Plus there's some nice understated psychedelic guitar bits zinging off all over the shop, the whole jam being rather mantra-ish, evolving steadily into a wild, heady and potent climax. Almost as satisfying as Thee Oh Sees or White Hills when they go epic. I wanna listen to this really loud till my head falls off. I can live without the Vampire Hands (they get a 3) but this relentless head churner gets a five. And methinks that averages out into a 4.
