The final episode from the Spring season of the Lucky Barn Series finds the Weather Station working through the haunting "Like Sisters" and pushing the boundaries of folk music in all the right ways. As the musical moniker of Canadian singer/songwriter Tamara Lindeman, the Weather Station has been warmly embraced by critics and listeners, alike. And this tune evidences why, in lyrics like "When she moved out, sometimes he’d call me, I never should have answered. Sometimes you give, you’re giving all you have, and sometimes you’re the taker. Like the whole world went and slipped my way, and yet I didn’t want nothing so unequal. Like unearned praise, like someone I don’t recognise was looking back from my own eyes." More, please.
