Riding Shotgun with Tom Waits - The (Nearly) Indescribable Songs from Daddy's Hands!

Jangle. Rattle. Whisper. Shake. Shout. Drums. Thunder...
It kind of goes like that.

I could be describing the classic turmoil of Tom Waits but instead it's the creativity of Canadian artists Daddy's Hands. The group formally just released "Welcome Kings" - a record full of creative cacophony and more twists than a wind sock. The songs were initially record two years ago but it has taken some time for the band to get the music out there. Kill Devil Hills - a British Columbia indie record label has given the group a shot. The tracks leave differing and strong opinions in their wake - just like those crafted by Tom Waits!
