Reviewed 2005-01-31
Good fem harmonized singing, cleanly recorded acoustic guitar mandolin etc, café music. Mostly originals, all members write. Some tracks could be country/bluegrass, some could be folk, might as well file it in general.

1.slow, pretty, feminine unity
2.Cool traditional sailor song
+3. quiet low drumming (bodhran), 1st verse solo voice then trio
4.country Canada style, on the farm, more instruments at end
+5. About various lonely archetypes, yet upbeat. Reminds me of Roches
6.too much pretty, sentiment rings hollow
+7. Simple, folky, nice harmonies. I like the Neil Young original too
8.rather pretty accept-my-lot song
9.pretty hesitant love long, doesn’t quite do it for me
+10.gutsier love/lust song.
11slow careful music, sad, nicely done. a cover.
12.pretty good energy, lilting ¾ time
+13.acapella folk tune somewhere between lullaby and drinking song
