With Love From
Sixteen years after “Potential Breakup Song,” the addictive pop-rock tune from sisters Aly & AJ’s breakout third album, Insomniatic, and a few additional sonic detours since then (’80s synth-pop on 2017’s Ten Years EP, folky alt-rock on 2021’s a touch of the beat gets you up on your feet gets you out and then into the sun) has led here: With Love From, a collection of sunshine-y, foot-tapping Americana. Their love of classic country hits hard in the opener, “Open to Something and That Something Is You,” with its intertwined vocals and slide guitar. There’s only one collaboration on the release: That’s Joy Oladokun on the optimistic ballad “Way of Nature Way of Grace”—her rich voice deepens the sisters’ sweet falsetto. Throughout, With Love From resonates like a road trip throughout the American West: wide, warm, breezy.
