Seeing Double: Girl Groups


Females singing in harmony is one of the true pleasures of living. The Washerman’s Dog has put together a volume of beautiful and glittering pleasures for your (repeated) listening enjoyment.  You’ll know of The Supremes, The Roches and perhaps some of these other girl groups. But The Waifs, Zap MamaRising Appalachia, Les Nubians, The Wailin’ Jennys, Freakwater, The Unthanks and The Be Good Tanyas might be new to you.

These songs cover much territory (love, religion, family, trains, drugs, politics) and many moods (funny, heartbreaking, yearning).  The sounds are country, blues, bluegrass, rap, and others that fall between the gaps.

Happy listening.
