Giddyup! Sons and Daughters Release New Album, Tour America

I love Americana. Especially when it's made by Scottish people! If you, like me, can't get enough of awesome accents and male-female vocal harmonies, then you're in luck -- because Domino Records artists Sons and Daughters have a new album! And they're going on tour! Entitled This Gift (TMT Review), the album was produced by ex-Suede guitarist Bernard Butler, and released stateside at the end of January.

The Glasgow group performed and recorded with Arab Strap before spreading their country wings and flying into their own vein of energetic, darkly beautiful rock. Since their formation in 2001, Sons and Daughters have opened for The Decemberists, Franz Ferdinand, and -- yes, oh yes -- MORRISSEY. They've been busy touring the UK this past fall, and now they're bringing the show to America, where the band will kick things off with a performance at the Domino Records showcase at the South by Southwest festival. So get out your cowboy boots, your sense of black humor, and a bottle of moonshine, because Sons and Daughters are going to show you how alt-country is done.
