Sweetwater

comment
Sweetwater can best be described as folk rock, making this the point at which, customarily, the music is called lovely or gentle or something fairly synonymous with wimpy, and the harmonies are described as angelic. Okay, that all might be true, but there's much more at work here. The work of Tres Chicas (Lynn Blakey, Caitlin Cary, and Tonya Lamm) is folk rock with teeth and with what often feels like a barely tamed spirit. And while the harmonies do feel heaven-sent, the trio's devilish personalities frequently poke through, no more so than on a cover of Loretta Lynn's feisty "Deep as Your Pocket."
