The Watson Twins - Fire Songs

The Watson Twins were catapulted into the public's eye in 2006, adding vocals to Jenny Lewis's "Rabbit fur coat" album, touring the World with the Rilo Kiley singer to promote the collection, managing to release their EP "Southern manners" around the same time.
The LA based sisters debut album "Fire songs" continues down the same line as their previous work with Chandra and Leigh delivering ten country tinged tracks.
It's a fairly low key offering with the majority of songs lacking any memorable hooks, creating an unsatisfying listening experience.
The girl's voices are "nice" enough but there's just nothing to pull you in.
I've played the album several times in the hope that a song would finally jump out at me but it still remains a lifeless mid paced 40 minutes of tedium!
Unfortunately the only memorable song on the album is a lacklustre run through of The Cure's "Just like heaven".
I expected more from the girls so found the collection very disappointing.
If I had to offer up any tracks to listen to I'd suggest album opener "How am I to be" and "Dig a little deeper" but I doubt I'll be returning to The Watson Twins debut in the future.
