Good Lovelies

Let the Rain Fall (Warner)

Wearing those breezy thrift-store frocks must conjure music of the same vintage. Then you go on tour with Stuart McLean. (It worked for Jill Barber and Meaghan Smith.) There is no disputing these gorgeous harmonies. Grandma will eat this stuff up and likely have a flashback, especially during “Kiss Me in the Kitchen.” “Kingston” is one of the more poignant laments for home by this well-travelled Toronto trio. Every song is a Good Lovelies original, save “Crabbuckit” by K-os, which should snap the listener out of a pout that it’s all a bit twee. With Let the Rain Fall, daydream like it’s 1954, when it might have been easier to find the time.
