Genre(s): Indie, Rock
On 2004's brilliantly spiky mini-album Three Fingers, the Rogers Sisters perfected the bouncy-yet-taut sound they originated on Purely Evil. On their Too Pure debut, The Invisible Deck, they sound just as insistent but a little less impish as they expand their palette to include slower tempos, different instrumentation, and a wider emotional range (all of which are present on the spooky, sinuous, flute-embellished "Your Littlest World"). "Never Learn to Cry" -- which sports great lyrics like "do memories forget when no one is around?" -- and "Emotion Control" are both surprisingly vulnerable moments from a band whose usual emotional state lies somewhere between clever and cheeky.
