Last November, I wrote:

"THE PIERCES are sisters Catherine and Allison, who, having already made the journey from their birthplace of Alabama to New York City, are now off to support Albert Hammond, Jr. on his tour of the UK.

Their debut album, THIRTEEN TALES OF LOVE AND REVENGE, will be released in February of '07 on LIZARD KING RECORDS."

Well, said "debut" album ultimately didn't see release until March 20. And an alert reader ultimately clued me in to the fact that said "debut" album was not, in fact, the Pierces' first album. It was, in fact, their third album (after their self-titled, genuine "debut" in 2000 and 2005's LIGHT OF THE MOON).

Of the tracks below, "Boring" borders on the "novelty" -- and is probably closer to t.A.T.u than BLACK BOX RECORDER -- but I'm still rather enjoying it. "Turn on Billie" takes things in a more sultry, cabaret direction (more NELLIE McKAY than AMY WINEHOUSE).
