The long awaited long player from the Minneapolis' The Owls is finally finished. Apart from a few compilations The Owls haven't seen a release since 2004's "Our Hopes and Dreams" mini lp. Instead of spending countless hours in a studio the band decided to make themselves more self sufficient and set up the recording studio themselves which there is always a learning curve involved. Three songwriters Brian Tighe, Maria May, and Allison LaBonne come together with drummer John Jerry and special friends to create an unlikely musical voyage, aboard ships, carnival rides, airplanes; trespassing through backyards, human resources departments, and down perilous roads into the distance. Bitter yet life affirming, the Owls console comic strip characters, invent the perfect man, party on the eve of the apocalypse, explore the notion of empire, pay their bills by candlelight, and send flowers into sewers before bidding listeners a rousing adieu. Rich with melody and male/female harmony Daughters and Suns tenders buoyant, laid-back pop with gentle strikes of lightning.
