The Watson Twins, 'Fire Songs' (Vanguard)

6
Fire Songs
Critical Mass
Label: Vanguard

by Shannon Zimmerman

Leigh and Chandra Watson first pricked up indie-rock ears when they backed Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis on her 2006 solo debut, Rabbit Fur Coat. Their haunting harmonies are in full effect throughout the L.A.-based sister act's first full-length, on which they coo seductively over atmospheric folk-rock arrangements. The Watson Twins' songwriting isn't quite as memorable as their singing; too many of the tunes fade into open-mic background fare. Maybe that's why they included a gorgeous cover of the Cure's "Just Like Heaven."
