the
Watson Twins will have their sophomore
release Talking To You, Talking To Me issued on Vanguard Records February 9their most ambitious
album to date. The new album finds the Watson Twins taking a soulful turn a la
Carole King, but with a pop edge reminiscent of Feist. The result is a
heartfelt nod to their roots, retaining the ethereal harmonies that have become
their signature while incorporating a variety of influences and inspirations.

 

In June of 2009 Chandra and Leigh,
along with producers J. Soda and Russell Pollard, went to a remote cabin in the
High Sierras near Yosemite to demo songs for
the new album. What they captured there would be the backbone of Talking To
You, Talking To Me.
The songs were brought back to Los Angeles where a band of friends
(including members of Everest and My Morning Jacket) came together to help
record the album at Fairfax Recordings. Talking To You, Talking To Me captures the essence of the Watson Twins extraordinary music… driving, poignant
and beautiful. More information and links below.
