ID LIEK YUO TO METE MY BEUTIFL DAUGHTERS

One of the most lovable & sick albums in my collection, Daughters' _Canada Songs_ is a technical and rabid onslaught, with that ineffably disturbing excitement only the best grind delivers. The thing is tho', where most techy-grind bands sound pretty cool/calculating or pissed right off, Daughters are absolutely insane. I would like to say they found the tabs for these songs scrawled in blood and feces in an abandoned asylum! That's not true obviously but it sounds realistic. Even though the songs are usually only around a minute in length, you'll be hard-pressed to tell where you are in the piece. And so while this makes it tempting to call _Canada Songs_ utterly chaotic noise, and delicious noise at that, there is too much careful structure and performance in Daughters' miniature episodes. It's almost too spastic and too clean to just be grind, but it's so abrupt, brutal, and fast and CRAZY. if we get caught up in labels we might be here all day so whatever. The hyperspeed onslaughts and off-kilter, odd-time breakdowns are always punctuated by absolutely gross vocals and switchback riffs bouncing erratically through different tempi without warning. Imagine Melt Banana, but very polished/refined! The whole album is what 11 minutes? but has numerous twisted moments to agitate you: samples of porno-jazz/elevator musak, short-but-sweet post-rock like build-ups on a static key, or the mentally disturbed proginess of certain passages. If you make it through the vertigo-inducing minute of the opening cut without vomiting, then you will absolutely love the rest of the album. check it out!
