“Kindred Lines,” the debut album from T Sisters — remarkably talented siblings Erika, Rachel and Chloe Tietjen — is a revelation and an absolute must for anyone who loves old-time country and folk music. Hailing from the Bay Area, T Sisters deliver a pitch-perfect gathering of 12 tunes filled with three-part harmonies that is an absolute joy from beginning to end.
A capella gem “You Don’t Know” launches the album, and is followed by “Seduction of Spring,” a tune that sounds like it could have been recorded during World War II. Additional standouts include “Woo Woo,” “Train Wreck,” “The Wind,” “Molasses,” “But Not for You” and “Broken Wings.” The ladies also score with the lone cover on “Kindred Lines,” a delightful reading of Paul Simon’s “American Tune.” I can’t recommend this one highly enough.
