The Watson Twins

Chandra and Leigh Watson — better known as the Watson Twins — got their big break in 2006 by adding soulful embroidery to Jenny Lewis’ barbed ballads on Rabbit Fur Coat. But these singers are more than country dressing to Lewis’ Laurel Canyon-influenced folk-rock. The duo stepped out from behind Lewis in 2008 with Fire Songs, and they’re back with a new release, Talking to You, Talking to Me. The 2010 album offers up more charm, but the arrangements are more muscular than before. The Watsons’ airy voices also take on new depth and prove capable of a lot more than just oohs and ahs.
