SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on August 22, 2005 at 10:56 pm

Vocals: Dueling Scottish accents from Adele Bethel (who has Shirley Manson of Garbage’sicon sultriness) and Scott Patterson (who has a darker brogue that alternates between Nick Cave’sicon wickedness and Shane McGowan of the Poguesicon drunkenness)
Music: Rhythm is at the forefront as they sinfully stomp and hoedown to handclap-laden, indie rock and country/folky punk
Heavy Rotation tracks:Taste the Last Girlicon“; “Chokedicon“; “Monstersicon“; “Rama Lamaicon
Medium Rotation tracks: The resticon
Recommended: As a fun, debauchery-fueled party album. Listen closer, however, and you’ll find that few of the songs feel fully realized and leave you wishing they developed their excellent sound and ideas further. Sons and Daughters are brimming with potential, and if they step up their songwriting a couple notches in the future, they’ll really be dangerous.
Grade: A- (Top 20 Albums of 2005 Candidate)
