“Roses in Winter”
Los Angeles? That’s what we said when we found out that the folk-singer duo The Chapin Sisters called LA their homebase. Sounding as if they spend their days milling about on a farm, rather than hanging out in the land of urban sprawl, Lily and Abigail Chapin (sometimes joined by their sister, Jessica), first got noticed for their stripped-down version of Britney Spears’ “Toxic” in 2004. Now having recently released their organic and vocal-centric album, Two, the two sisters stop by Milwaukee’s Cactus Club (2496 S. Wentworth) this Saturday, November 13th for a 10 p.m. show with Montreal’s NEeMA to promote it. Sweet, dark and pretty, Two is a unique listen (hear for yourself with “Roses in Winter”, above). Want a copy of Two before you go to Saturday’s show? Incidentally, we have two to give away. It’s easy. Just be the first two to email wolf (at) msoe (dot) edu with ‘Chapin Sisters’ in the subject line, and the album is all yours.
