5.0 out of 5 stars A Timeless Beauty, 31 Oct 2013
This review is from: Lily and Madeleine (Audio CD)
Lily and Madeleine Jurkiewicz are two teenage sisters from Indianapolis who make acoustic folk music that seems to have come from another age, another time, yet is as fresh and new as tomorrow promises to be. The evocative sound of piano and cello on the opener "Sounds Like Somewhere" ushers in their ethereal and haunting harmonies and leads on to a collection of enchanting, melodic and beguiling songs that are a collaboration between Lily and seasoned Indiana musician, Kenny Childers.

From the lyrical beauty of "Disappearing Heart", the grand harmonic structure of "Come To Me" and the lilting "Nothing But Time", you find that their sound occupies a space that is somewhere between The Fleet Foxes and The Byrds with a suspicion of some Simon and Garfunkel riffs as well.

Madeleine plays piano and Lily plays guitar and they are supported by cello, bass, slide guitar, drums and percussion. With these simple instruments the producer, Paul Mahern, has created a dense and richly textured sound that is essential for the sensual beauty of the songs.

As the album unfolds and then closes with the high harmony sound of "Paradise" and the cello infused "You Got Out" you marvel at how two sisters, so young, could have delivered an album of such maturity and timeless elegance.
