The Secret Sisters
Critical Mass

If there's a flaw on this Alabama duo's debut, it's predictability. T-Bone Burnett and Jack White serve as executive producer and mentor, respectively, with Laura and Lydia Rogers putting a sister-act spin on dusty Americana--bet you can hear it already. But even if Secret Sisters draws from a familiar post-O Brother, Where Art Thou? playbook, it's still an alluring, atmospheric soundtrack for imagining late-night, backroads misdeeds. The Rogers' vocal harmonies are a delight, especially on the two George Jones covers as well as the shock-value ringer "Somethin' Stupid."
