Listing Detail Tabs

Canada's premier female folk/country group, the Be Good Tanyas, manage to sound at once traditional and contemporary on this, their third full-length album. Almost half of the songs are well-chosen covers, demonstrating the group's talent at reinterpreting the music of others as they take on the likes of Neil Young's 'For the Turnstiles' and Prince's 'When Doves Cry' with the same respect and aptitude as they do traditional songs like 'What Are They Doing in Heaven Today' and 'Out of the Wilderness'.

Darting between back-porch jams, lonely bluegrass stompers and country whoop-and-hollers, the trio (that once included folk darling Jolie Holland in their ranks – she pops back for a visit here, contributing vocals on one track) produce spine-tingling harmonies as well as variously playing guitars, piano, mandolin and banjo between them.

While their take on the music of others is inspired, their originals are even more so, and tracks like 'Ootischenia' stand to become the benchmark by which all other female folksters are measured, with its old-school Emmylou Harris-esque vocals and surprising lyrics ("I'm gonna spank you 'til you can't sit down!") that work their magic over a simple drumbeat and furious banjo.
