The Unthanks, 'Here's the Tender Coming' (EMI)

Here's the Tender Coming
Critical Mass
Label: EMI

by Amanda Petrusich

British songstresses Becky and Rachel Unthank harmonize in that way only siblings can -- effortlessly, and with eerie accord. Despite personnel changes, Here's the Tender Coming, the Unthanks' third LP, is still steeped in brutal Northumberland lore, and its doomed subjects (drowning sailors, child mine workers, a woman who dies on her wedding day) are well served by the band's dark, gentle strums and ghostly piano lines.
