2008 is but a couple weeks old, but I've already managed to be disappointed by a number of new releases. GOLDFRAPP, BRITISH SEA POWER, NADA SURF, HOT CHIP, LOS CAMPESINOS!, CAT POWER, BOB MOULD... all have fallen short. Sometimes, miserably so.
Color me tickled pink, then, to be able to shout from the rooftops about SONS AND DAUGHTERS' upcoming THIS GIFT. This will be the Glasgow quartet's third album, and it will officially hit the streets on January 29. At this early stage, it seems a bit slicker -- a bit more polished -- than its predecessors. A bit more "pop-py," perhaps? Perhaps. But longtime fans need not fear -- there's still plenty of piss 'n' vinegar in the mix....
