Blue grassish beauty,
This review is from: Made The Harbor (Audio CD)
A friend recommended this to me and I am glad he did. This all girl trio have made a slice of blue grass lovliness that is as different from anything else I have heard in a long while and at the same time has a timless quality that may have you thinking nothing new here.
Like the other excellent review I agree that stand out songs are 'Swee swee' and 'Soft skin', though having said that the first time I heard it I felt as though all the songs blended in together. They harmonise beautifully through out in a style that is so graceful it appears effortless. Somone compared it to the siren scene from 'O brother where art thou' and I entirely concur.
At times it feels almost religious as in something you could hear without fear of sacriledge in a Cathederal. The only real criticism is that you will need to persevere in order to appreciate the differences in the songs as the lack of many instruments save a guitar tend to lean toward a feeling of deja vu, but in an altogether pleasant way. I hear thay are very good live too.

I wouldn't describe this as "bluegrass", as bluegrass is usually characterised by the interplay between various stringed instruments (with or without vocals) - and, as you say, this is mostly vocals with little or no instruments.
