HEATHERS: Here Not There: CD

Sep 30, 2008

Like an Irish Tegan And Sara fronting Even In Blackouts. I like all three of those things a lot, and I sure as hell like this record. It’s just dual vocals and acoustic guitar (with cello on a few tracks), but the sound is somehow bigger than that. Sisters Louise and Ellie MacNamara fucking wail on this eleven-song CD, released jointly by Florida’s Plan-It X and Dublin’s Hide Away Records. The songs are short and sweet bursts of two-part harmony, sass, and brilliance. Oh, and there’s a dinosaur on the cover. D’you ever feel like someone created a record just for you? Damn, I was so absorbed I just missed my bus stop.
