Top Albums 2006- #12

Mothers, Sisters, Daughters, and Wives/Raised By Wolves

Raised By Wolves came out in late 2005, but Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives came out so close after in early 2006 that it’s hard to separate the two. These EP’s would be stand outs based on Ramesh Srivastava’s songwriting alone (try mapping all the chord changes), but it’s the musical muscle of the band that makes it exceptional. If you listen in chronological order, you can almost hear the band tighten into something greater than their influences. It’s a bit pessimistic, but with a start this strong it’s hard to tell if their full length can live up to such standards.
