L.A.'s The Chapin Sisters (three actual sisters) wed lilting voices, dynamically complex vocal harmonies, and Folk-influenced melodies to dark, wryly sarcastic lyrical content. Their words express heartbreak, love lost and disillusionment from different and unique angles, while their singing expresses an exultant celebration of life. The arrangements are sparse yet rich, showcasing the sisters' sophisticated vocal harmonies supported by Abigail and Lily's subtle acoustic guitars and the occasional accent of bass, percussion, electric violin and singing saw. Produced by Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Vetiver, The Pernice Brothers) and Mike Daly. The album title is an ode to their family, as Lake Bottom is the farm in New Jersey that their great-grandfather Kenneth Burke bought in 1925, and the family still owns. 11 tracks.
