This Daniels family band of siblings (Ben, Robin, and Laura Daniels) are not to be confused with the Danielson Family, nor the Charlie Daniels Band. Nor are they Scottish, but are actually from Philadelphia, PA. However enigmatic these Pitchfork darlings may appear, their lush dream pop, with its electronica hybrids of Stereolab and Cocteau Twins, is crystalline. Their brand new Ashes Grammar, digs deep into the shoegaze cannon—lotsa blissful My Bloody Valentine and Jesus and the Mary Chain whiteouts. With Frances, the Jaguar Club, and Wooden Sky.
