SHELBY LYNNE & ALLISoN MooRER Not Dark Yet

Coun­try sib­lings fi­nally make an al­bum to­gether

UNCUT - - New Albums - STEPHEN DEUSNER

On their first record to­gether, Lynne and Moorer – by now veter­ans of both the coun­try main­stream and its mar­gins – cover nine songs rang­ing from the usual sus­pects (the Lou­vin Brothers, Merle Hag­gard) to the un­usual (The Killers, Nick Cave). Their voices blend beau­ti­fully, es­pe­cially on Dy­lan’s ti­tle track and Jason Is­bell’s “The Color Of A Cloudy Day”, but they cat­er­waul awk­wardly on an un­in­ten­tion­ally silly ver­sion of Nir­vana’s “Lithium”. Their lone co-write, “Is It Too Much”, points to­ward a solid set of orig­i­nals on the hori­zon.
