Christy & Emily, 'Superstition' (Big Print)

7
Superstition
Critical Mass
Label: Big Print

by Jessica Hopper

This dreamy Brooklyn folk duo's second album teases with a deceptive sweetness. "Lover's Talk" and "Superstition" come on like benign, soft-edged pop with ghosty bits of melody held together by heavenly harmonies. But there's something unsettling beneath the Wurlitzer organ wub-wub and Christy's reverb-drenched guitar. Doomy minor chords jut out and harmonies diverge as the two ladies sing of evil thoughts and bad dreams. Before long, their overt innocence feels like a crafty, almost creepy shadow play.
