I hate bearing bad news— but I didn't know if anyone here was aware of Maggie Roche passing away this past January....

I have copies of just about every album they released, and I saw them perform a couple times in DC. Their first album "The Roches" was produced by Robert Fripp, and had a tremendous sound that they could never quite match (afford?) in their following albums. It's all great sing-along music in the car ...

Absolutely adore The Roches!  And yes the vocal resemblance is striking.

 k d lang has one of the most, if not the most, spectacular voice I've ever heard. I like Neko Case, but I am blown away by k d.

The first three lines are sung by lang (I'm not the freckled maid); Veirs (I'm not the fair-haired girl) and then Case (I'm not a pail of milk for you to spoil).

I saw them during their tour and while I'm first and foremost a Neko Case fan I have to say that k d lang has a an absolutely spectacular voice.  Her range, depth, tone, clarity are all just stunning.

Was really looking forward to seeing these ladies at a festival this weekend.  Found out last night that they just cancelled due to "logistics".  That was about five minutes after I found out I'm getting backstage passes.  Damn!

some tiny part of it sounds like "Silent Lucidity" by what's-their-names from the early 90s. 

pretty song nonetheless.

This is probably the best song on the album, really. Saw them live last month at a terrible venue here - hoping others on their tours this summer don't have the same disappointment that I had.... I should've just bought a couple the songs instead.

Maybe it's Laura Vier's distinct voice that calls me through the ether (or it could simply be air), but this music is quite appealing on initial hearing. Let's hear some more off this album. At least she and Neko write interesting and intelligent songs and have voices that stand out from the bedlam (no it's not bedlam on RP, just so many other places).

 
That's interesting because I think of Veirs as the weak link in this group. I'm a big fan of Case and Lang, so I'm not too put off by the not quite on-pitch vocals from Veirs.

I just LOVE these three voices together. Also love the phrasing in this song, especially when Neko sings "Purring like a city bus" and draaaaaaws out the "liiiiiiiike." Mmm! {#Yes}
