Biography

The Secret Sisters’ incredible story is as simple and true as the effortless harmonies that got them here. Begin anywhere – the thick and fertile brambles of their own family history or light upon the branches of the wondrous, fractal menagerie that makes up their self-titled debut album. The pair of Alabama sisters direct from Mussel Shoals (barely twenty-somethings ... Read more in Amazon's The Secret Sisters Store

The Secret Sisters, in real life siblings Lydia and Laura Rogers out of Alabama, seemingly came out of nowhere some 3-4 years ago with their stunning self-titled debut album, receiving much critical acclaim. It was as if the album was transposed from a different era. Now finally comes the much-anticipated follow-up album.

"Put Your Needle Down" (12 tracks; 44 min.) continues to explore the vocal interplay between Lydia and Laura. The album opens with a nice "Rattle My Bones", and then shifts to "Iuka", a beautiful reflective tune. "Dirty Lie" is layered with strings. "The Pocket Knife" is a showcase for the sisters' dual lead vocals. The first half of the album closes with the wistful "Black And Blue". The nostalgia vibe continues with "Lonely Island", which I could've sworn is an Everly Brothers song, except that it isn't. "I Cannot Find a Way" is a more country-leaning song. "Good Luck, Goodnight, Goodbye" sounds it would be the perfect album closer (and in fact it is a terrific tune), but it is not. That honor goes to "River Jordan", which is a little strange. But it's a very minor quibble. As was the case with the debut album, the new album is produced by uber-producer T-Bone Burnett. By now the girls are sounding ever more confident and, as a result, "Put Your Needle Down" is for me a stronger album that their debut album.

I haven't had the opportunity yet to see the Secret Sisters in concert. I can only hope they will take to the road in a massive way to support this album, and with a little luck I'll get to see them here in Cincinnati at some point. Meanwhile, "Put Your Needle Down" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I love good music. I'm not driven by genre or style. Their first album was fantastic country music in the traditional sense. This album is a more modern take on it all. I'm not going to pigeon hole them in my mind as to what style it would be called. It's simply showing solid music performances that gives the listener memorable tunes and lyrics. Vocally it's wonderful as well. The instrument back up is very good too. There are so many acts out there right now who don't provide good quality in what they put out, that it's just nice to listen to this solid piece of music like this album. Don't make us wait so long for the next album Secret Sisters!

I really like this album. The Secret Sisters seem to sing with a simple joyousness and a delight in the music and their harmonies which is simply irresistible.

This album has a great mixture of songs (including a Dylan song, Dirty Lie, which I hadn't heard before) in a variety of styles from which are hard to categorize – blues, country rock, early 60s heartbreak songs…it's just a really enjoyable mixture.

I found that a lot of songs reminded me of something else I liked – the opener Rattle My Bones echoes Not Fade Away, Let there Be Lonely has snatches of Ebony Eyes in places and so on – and the spirit of The Everlys is never far away. This is just fine, because the Sisters give everything their own treatment and so obviously love what they are singing and the very act of singing together that everything just shines out. They take the music seriously but there's a knowing twinkle in the eye throughout which just makes me smile.

If you like songs with a slightly late-50s or 60's feel don't hesitate. It's not especially original or ground-breaking music, but it's hugely enjoyable. It is good material performed by two very fine singers with a good band and very well produced to give each song just the right atmosphere. What more could you want? Very warmly recommended.

My problem with this album is that I can't put my needle back up again (that's right, I bought it on vinyl). Although the sophomore effort from the sisters Rogers is still unmistakably grounded in Americana, these young ladies clearly are not afraid to push the envelope. And that may pose a problem for purists, especially if the hope was for something more along the lines of their first album. "Needle" may just kick a little too much butt.

Opening with an uptempo grabber, "Rattle My Bones" gives us a foretaste of what the rest of the album has in store: exquisite harmonies, superb musicianship, and compelling lyrics. The smoldering ballad "Iuka" (pronounced eye-YOO-ka) portrays a tragic picture of love in rural Mississippi, and sounds like a song that Peggy Lee might've sung - if Nick Cave had written the lyrics. "Dirty Lie" is as good as a Dylan cover can get - one almost expects Bob to jump in at any moment on an alternate verse. The two songs that seem like obvious candidates for a 7" single - if in fact such things are still being made these days - are "Black and Blue" and "Good Luck, Good Night, Goodbye", both of which are SS originals. Both songs have so much going for them: "Black and Blue" tugs on the heartstrings while simultaneously getting your toes tapping, and "Good Luck" is quite simply some of the most irresistible song writing ever produced in the 21st century: a woman with a recently broken heart addresses an amorous suitor, who apparently ends up getting thrown out at third after rounding second. The lyrics are at once melancholy and playful, sexy and somber, and the minor key outro on which the songs ends seems to underline the fact that not all love stories conclude with happy endings.
