Hale by The Sterling Sisters was released last summer, but is worth the mention. If this review looks too long, just go check them out – they are really good.

 

After a number of EPs, The Sterling Sisters have released their debut full-length CD.

 

Playing a gothic-infused, moody, dark americana, The Sterling Sisters are telling tales of times that are far long gone and far gone out, of love lost and gained, pride and passion, yearning and learning, wanderlust and just plain lust.

 

Invoking dusty outback trips through the central states of the USA in times when highways were inexistant, the music of The Sterling Sisters could sometimes seem to belong to a spaghetti western and at other times to a silent movie.

 

One of the genius elements of The Sterling Sisters is the combination of the voices of the main vocalists and songwriters Scout Paré-Phillips and George Cessna.

 

Some of the best tracks on Hale are: “Raised You in the West”, in which the voice of Scout Paré-Phillips is filled with the melancholy of a mother mourning a lost child; “Last Run”, which invokes trains that slowly steam through miles and miles of countryside; the catchy country track “Country Love” and the uptempo “Heaven”, which paints the landscape of the deserts in Arizona and Nevada.

 

Trust me on my judgment for this one: check out Hale by The Sterling Sisters. With so many layers of melancholy and wit, you can't be disappointed in this record.
