"Real-life sisters Laura and Lydia Rogers are as flawlessly retro as "Mad Men" and as lively and bold as Bettie Page, and their voices ring in impeccable harmonies that soar straight into The Everly Brothers' territory." — NPR Music

The Secret Sisters, in real life siblings Lydia and Laura Rogers out of musically-famed Muscle Shoals, Alabama, seemingly came out of nowhere with their 2010 stunning self-titled debut album, receiving much critical acclaim. Now, finally, comes the much-anticipated follow-up album, Put Your Needle Down.

The sisters' debut album was heavily influenced by classic country singers. They absorbed their strum-and-twang sensibilities while growing up in a musically inclined family from a region rich in American music history, Muscle Shoals, Ala. Their new album is a leap forward, showing artistic growth and sophistication. You can hear it in the jazz-inflected sound of "Dirty Lie," a demo that Bob Dylan started writing in the 1980s, but never finished. It's the only song in their repertoire that they don't sing harmonies on, but by adding more lyrics and styling it up, they make it their own.

Even in their lyrics, the sisters have mastered the art of looking backward and forward at the same time. Their love songs often explore the power struggle in romantic relationships. Sometimes they keep the upper hand, sometimes they don't. But from their lips, even forlorn acquiescence sounds more like ruminating in a Hawaiian paradise than a bad breakup.
