Review: Penelope Isles, “Until The Tide Creeps In”

Music history is littered with plenty of successful sibling team-up bands; Sister Sledge, Tegan and Sarah, The Darkness, Echosmith, Oasis, except that last one’s probably a bad example, so nevermind. Maybe Jack and Lilly Wolter will one day add their names to that number. Until the Tide Creeps In, their debut album under the banner of Penelope Isles, is a solid starting point for their career going forward.

If I have a complaint, it’s that the throughlines don’t quite cohere; thematically, the record feels a little scattershot, though I say this a) with lots of distance separating me from my last listen, and b) under the belief that this might have more to do with track order than with the actual songs, which rock.
