Last pressed in 2004, Daughter's debut album, Canada Songs, is once again available on vinyl! Daughters burst forth, middle fingers flying, with a debut album of ultra-brutal, grind-influenced, screaming chaos. Combining thunderous drums with inhumanly fast blasts of squealing high-pitched guitars, manic screams, noise, and huge breakdowns, the band delivers a form of heavy music that is simply crushing.
Mat Hocking May of Drowned In Sound stated of the album: "it's nothing short of intense" and "a rabid cut 'n' slash firebomb of splintered art-core and lacerating guitar shrieks". May also praises Daughters' approach to the album saying "Daughters' chaotically freeform approach reconfigures the way melody and noise is assimilated through some of the most fiercely challenging experimentation probably ever attempted." Kerrang called the band "a seditious delight" and stated "when you play chaotic art-core at blistering speed, there's a fine line between being inventive and exhilarating and being vapid and pointless. Thankfully, Daughters fall firmly into the former camp." Spin praised drummer Jon Syverson's fast way of playing, "slap-happy metallic grind punk with a drummer who grooves like Roy Jones Jr. Working over a kitchen full of pots and pans in 14/8 time. There are even oddly melodic moments, despite guitars that sound like busted car alarms, and at 11 minutes total, there's no wasted motion."
