Kinleys - Just Between You And Me

Country day is back! As I mentioned in a non music post this week, a couple people really stepped up and gave me a TON of country to listen to. Big thanks again to JenInTosa and Shaqwanda. This one comes from Shaqwanda - who normally is the B Side resident punk rock suggester. Sounds like she spent very little time in her life focusing on country music, but gave me a few of her faves. The Kinleys here are a pair of sisters who happen to be identical twins. They are from Philadelphia and began making music around 1995. This particular record came out in '97 and is certified gold by the RIAA. Country genre wise...hmm. That's a tough one. This was probably considered pop country back in that time, but it's nothing like todays pop country style of a Swift or Underwood. This is a more upbeat (for the most part) album. 4 singles off this hit the country stations between '97 and '98 which is probably what led to it's solid gold success. I'd never even heard of these ladies before today. I know they released two more albums after this one - the most recent being in 2004 that was only on an independent label. This album certainly isn't offensive to my listening senses. It probably wouldn't be something I'd toss on during a random Thursday - but it's not bad. Not bad at all. I think a country fan would easily enjoy this. Not sure if it'd appeal to a pop crowd or not. Probably not. Country fans should really try this out today. If you're like me and haven't heard of it - it's got a certain Wilson Phillips feel to it. So if you like them, you'll like this.
