Daughter #5 - If You Leave / Buzz Session

Facebook / ohdaughter.com/

So not really any new music as such (although there is a session track of an unreleased song) on this post, I've spoilt you enough recently in any case but I do bring some exciting news (if you've not seen it already)...

One of my top five anticipated releases of 2013 (Caitlin Rose, The Joy Formidable, Editors and The National *hopefully* are the others as you asked - though that was before David Bowie made my week) is the debut LP by Daughter, which earlier today was titled and dated, If you Leave (check out the gorgeous artwork too) will be released March 18th via 4AD and you can pre-order via Rough Trade here if you desire (and you should)...

The track listing combines some tracks already heard; a couple from earlier EP's with last years exquisite "Smother" and some altogether new ones - full details can be found on Daughter's Facebook page to save me copy and pasting.

A treat, though, for those of you who've perhaps been on Mars and have yet to check out this sublime trio (or if you've not seen this before), you couldn't go far wrong starting with the recently released Wild Honey Pie's Buzz Session. A track taken from the album, "Tomorrow" can be streamed below (and audio of the session downloaded) and gives a true indication of the beguiling talent of Daughter, their experimental soundscapes swell with incremental progression, glacial guitars and towering percussion. Then there is Elena's stark, wounded lyrics and whispered, intimate vocals. Melt your soul or heal your wounds, whatever you want from your music, you'll find it with Daughter.
