Daughters - You Won't Get What You Want 2LPIpecac Records
By titling their 2018 fourth full-length and debut for Ipecac Recordings, You Won't Get What You Want, Daughters send a crystal clear message. The quartet once again follow the same internal compass that guided them to blur the lines of fickle heavy music sub-genres in the first place and quietly ignite a cult fervor typically reserved for grindhouse phenomena. In fact, the best way to describe the philosophy and the sound of the quartet is simply: rock 'n' roll. The minimal wail of first single "Satan In The Wait" belies Alexis's intense spoken word-style delivery as gothic keys magnetically draw the spotlight. Follow-up "The Reason They Hate Me" hinges mechanized riffing and glitchy electronics as the frontman's haunting and hypnotic intonation curls around the hook. Elsewhere, "Less Sex" dips into a bluesy guitar that could've easily soundtracked a dark moment of True Detective Season 1, while the seven-minute "Ocean Song" spirals into numbing noise oblivion.
