‘Burning Days'

Sons of Fathers (self-released)

★★★★

Texas roots-rock duo Sons of Fathers made a splash with their 2011 self-titled debut and look to build on that success with solid new release “Burning Days.” Fronted by pals David Beck and Paul Cauthen, Sons of Fathers mix elements of rock, folk, Americana and punk defiance to create songs that sound both familiar and uniquely their own. Filled with ear-pleasing two-part harmonies, the 10-track release figures to help the band increase their ever-growing fan base.

Most of the songs merit multiple spins, with Sons of Fathers most effective on the opening tandem of “Hurt Someone” and the title track, “Not This Time,” “O.G.C.T.A.W.,” “Almost There” and “The Mansion.” And keeper “Feel the Fall” sounds like a deep cut from the Grateful Dead's “American Beauty” era. Already a treasure in the Lone Star State, it's only a matter of time until the rest of the country catches on to this talented band.
