Album Notes
Super Daughter will shyly take your pants off.
Super Daughter is folk music meets a laptop meets Summer's most private thoughts from her diary. Bendy metal saw meets old violin bow. Glass cylinder meets my pinky. Super Daughter is a secret competition to find the maximum number of cute and harmonious ways to sing the vowel "ahh" (we're still counting); east meets west (by
"east" I mean guitar and by "west" I mean banjo); and lyrics created by falling in love, falling out of love, and all of that time in between. Super Daughter is the one puffy cloud in the sky that looks exactly like your late Scottish terrier Muffy...until the wind shifts, and Muffy turns into a pirate flag. (Super Daughter will never make you walk the plank.) Super Daughter is one part John, one part Summer, three drops of singing bowl, some ukulele and a thousand tiny white bugs smushed up against the window of the recording studio. And if you show us a good time, Super Daughter will not hesitate to bring you home.
SD is.....
Summer (aka Ramona Quimby)
Rachel Summer Tupelo is a United Statesian, an Oberlin drop-out, and a flag-waver (but only when the flag has little corporate symbols instead of stars and is being waved ironically). She loves good music by people who love music made by good people. Same for poetry, short fiction, and bedding.
John (aka What Capitalism Was)
John Catfish hails from upstate New York, he studied the Communist/Anarchist debate at SUNY Purchase, his interests include cirkuses, treehouses, helping to smash the state with cutesy folks songs, and thinking about his friends.

Super Daughter resides in a rural intentional community (shh! don't say commune!) (commune) in central virginia.

Lo-fi band speaks to the kid in all of us
Super Daughter's debut release entitled The Animals We See (2004) gives us a 46 minute lesson on brotherly love.

Bandmates Summer and John could pass as siblings making sweet harmonies in some kind of countercultural after-school special. This vision is perfectly illustrated in their song, "No no no no no no," which makes up the cheery chorus accompanied by notes on a plastic toy piano. "Listen to the f*cked up world singing with wheeze in it's lungs."

An added bonus on their Animals LP is a hidden track (hint: rewind) where you get to make choices, and a cheeky music video of their catchy hit single, "Smiles Aren't What I Want," demanding a chocolate bar -- the organic fair-trade kind.

A unique blend of punky folk, Super Daughter loves you and they don't take themselves too seriously. Perhaps this is why their unique brand of angst appeals to the kid in all of us.

Seldom Heard Radio

The Animals We See ... The Music We Hear ...
Super Daughter's "The Animals We See" is playful, organic, and observant. This is 'folk' music at it's best - real folk making music for the joy of creative expression. The songs are intense and fun, sometimes simultaneously. "The Animals We See" has been revolving in my cd player more often than not since its arrival several weeks ago ... perfect for sunny mornings and deep post-midnight listening sessions. Thank the gods and godesses for the indie revolution.
