about

An earthy cocktail of roots-style music flavoured with blues, love ballads, rockabilly and some sweet-sounding yodels. Features their anthem 'Untouchable Girls'. Winner of Best Country Album NZ Music Awards 2001.

"This self produced (with Keith Ballantyne) uplifting collection of body moving sounds features nine original songs by these yodelling, entertaining twin, country singing lesbians and four songs written by others, including Maori country singing icon, Eddie Low. Superb backing musical support by top New Zealand musicians, give this album a wider highway along which the listener can choose to rest, move along from, and will no doubt return to. This collection is slick and enjoyable. Their clarity of voice and ease of melody punctuate a simply dressed emotion of musical comfortability. My favourite song is ‘Milestones’. In it’s country-pop attire, haunting melody lines and poetic lyrics, it shares an honesty that the listener will wear well. ‘Grass Highway’ is New Zealand country folk music in good shape."
- Mahinarangi Tocker, NZ Musician, June 2001
