Eisley, 'Combinations' (Reprise)

6
Combinations
Critical Mass
Label: Reprise

by Trevor Kelley

What's a young band to do when their much-hyped, long-incubated first album fails to connect with the masses? For Eisley, a wholesome group of siblings from suburban Texas, the answer is to borrow liberally from the classic-rock geezers who called it quits before they were born. Throughout Combinations, the DuPree sisters augment the slow-moving indie pop of their 2005 debut full-length with dramatic prog-guitar lines and shades of Fleetwood Mac's warm soft-rock glow. The vintage makeover suits them well, though, especially bewitching vocalists Stacy and Sherri, who have long seemed ready to twirl down Stevie Nicks' ethereal trail.
