It's fitting that the Glaswegian country quartet Sons & Daughters are the first band to have produced a tribute to Johnny Cash: their shared sense of noir is a strong bond indeed.
And while some of the more confused members of the British Press may have described them as 'Glaswegian Americana with a post punk edge' (oh, lets go for the Franz Ferdinand dollar, that's such a good market right now. Sheesh), they simply have the same urge as The Man In Black - to unleash their primal howl in the manner they see most fitting. And in this case, it's through fantastic, unsettling, dark thudding countrified blues.
And anyway, they're much more Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.
