Tiny Mix Tapes
While integrating these enticing new elements, Daughters manage to choke off their progression just enough. They don't sound like a different band, and they're not trying to.

Hell Songs fixes the flaws encountered with Canada Songs while maintaining an enjoyable and quirky sound.


The most dramatic stylistic shift by an extreme band in 2006, Hell Songs is a mere glimpse of what this immensely talented band is capable of.

Daughters may hail from Providence, Rhode Island, but they're better than most in their surrounding scene. Their songs borrow an ADD writing aesthetic from the Locust (among others) and a jagged post-no wave guitar sound from even more contemporary bands.

Definitely a solid improvement over their debut. The overall sound of the album is relatively more focused and crushing. Hell Songs may not be the most cohesive or attention-grabbing album for outsiders, but it certainly is a great treat for fans and a stepping-stone for the noise rock and hardcore sound they'll perfect with their next two records.
