The Living Sisters - Love to Live (2010)

look at that cover; you know this is some twee shit. not usually my thing, but i saw these ladies open up an acoustic set by X in Los Feliz a couple of months ago, and they absolutely killed it. it's like Jolie Holland (or Patsy Cline?) cloned herself a couple times and put together a rich, harmony-filled, country-folk album. the arrangements and production are warm and transparent, and these chicks have serious chops (one is the director of the L.A. Ladies Choir). a lovely and super sweet album; great Sunday afternoon music for that sunsplashed drive to IKEA, or wallowing in ironic self-pity.

pick me up some meatballs
