The female version of Fleet Foxes. This album does not disappoint. If you're in the mood for mellow, this is perfect.

The sisters' voices are clear, lovely and blend beautifully. Carefully crafted instrumental accompaniment enhances poetic lyrics. This CD is special in its straightforward presentation while maintaining subtle musical complexity.
