Even after singing together for more than 40 years, the Roches
still sound marvelously in tune. On Moonswept, their first album since 1995, sisters Maggie, Terre, and Suzzy blend and weave their voices on a set of original folk songs stuffed with pop smarts. On their gorgeous, self-titled 1979 debut, the Roches sang about boyfriends and roaming spirits. In a way, Moonswept (which comes out in a few weeks) sounds like an update on the same themes -- except that family has supplanted men and the group has since settled into more homebound activities. Still, these gals are troubadours who let the music take them where it will. And theyre always a reliable live act.
