As if it weren't already ridiculously obvious by now, The Haden Triplets – Rachel, Petra and Tanya – come from an unusually talented family. Their brother Josh Haden leads the alt-rock band Spain, intoning moody blue ballads that have been covered by Johnny Cash, while their dad, Charlie Haden, is, of course, a legendary jazz bassist who used to back Ornette Coleman. Separately and together, bassist Rachel (That Dog, Beck, Weezer), violinist Petra (That Dog, The Decemberists) and cellist Tanya (Silversun Pickups, Let's Go Sailing) have been wildly prolific, but something wonderfully strange and enchanting occurs when they put their heads and voices together as The Haden Triplets. On their just-released self-titled album (via Jack White's Third Man Records), producer Ry Cooder keeps the focus on the sisters' close, rich harmonies on folk and roots standards by The Louvin Brothers, Bill Monroe and The Carter Family.
