RADAR: The Hollering Pines

As the co-frontwomen of The Hollering Pines, Utah-based sisters Kiki Jane Buehner and Marie Bradshaw bring what their bio calls "blood tight harmonies" to the potent Americana and alt-country songs on their self-penned debut album Long Nights, Short Lives and Spilled Chances (out now). And once you hear their entwined vocals it's hard to argue otherwise. Backed by drummer/backing vocalist Dan Buehner and fine guitarist Dylan Schorer, Kiki Jane (now that's a name) and Marie rustle up overtones of Gillian Welch and Lucinda Williams, sweetly turned roadhouse balladry infused with a mellow country twang and Buehner's stark, lap-steel guitar moans. Even a song titled "Rock and Roll" becomes a roadhouse jukebox slow dance. Loverly stuff. Click through below for a listen to "Oh Mama" (free download, too).
